U. S. - Africa University Partnership
The program will seek 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.
