U.S. Africa Institute is an Independent, Interdisciplinary Academic, Research Think Tank dedicated to advance the and facilitate strategic partnerships between the United States of America and the continent of Africa through education and research, trade and investment; promote citizen diplomacy and offer community services to the African diaspora and Africa American communities. We work with U.S. government agencies, American and African institutions to leverage the power of global education and citizen diplomacy to foster a mutually-beneficial and meaningful strategic partnership between the U.S. and on the continent of Africa.
The Institute seeks to strengthen and promote U.S. academic and research initiatives with African universities through partnerships with the US government-led program in Africa. The goal of this program is to encourage study in Africa and also to establish links with African tertiary institutions for academic programs, research, staff development, and study abroad for U.S. college students. Focus areas include promoting faculty and student exchanges, facilitating joint research projects, and development of certification programs that have Africans complete their studies in their home country. The program also intends to collaborate with the US State Department Bureau of African Affairs University Partnership Initiative which is designed to collaborate with African universities.
