Africa Advisory Board

The Africa Advisory Board brings together business people, entrepreneurs, public servants, academic leaders, and cultural figures to advise the Center for African Studies as we chart a course for engagement across Africa. Africa Advisory Board members help to determine the Center’s research priorities and advise on policy relevance at annual meetings of the Board. Board members also serve as ambassadors for the Center and assist in shaping the field of African Studies, intellectually and institutionally.
