The Council is drawn from the Harvard community and beyond with geographic representation across the continent. In addition to geographic diversity, the Council is composed of leaders in a range of fields including the arts, science and technology, healthcare, government, and entrepreneurship. Members engage with CAS and its Advisory Board members to shape CAS’s and Harvard University’s broader engagement with Africa as a Continent.
