Welcome to the African Studies Center

The faculty, students, and staff of the African Studies Center, work to provide the University and the people of North Carolina with a campus hub for interdisciplinary inquiry and communication on Africa. Our activities include sponsoring a wide variety of activities, bringing together interested faculty and students from a large number of academic disciplines.

We focus on interconnected issues of political change, expressive culture, gender, sustainability, health, and Islam. We are located in the FedEx Global Education Center on the UNC Campus and are part of the College of Arts and Sciences.
