The African Studies Center (ASC) at the University of Michigan
ASC provides strategic guidance and coordination for Africa-related education, research, and training activities on campus, and promotes opportunities for collaboration with African partners on the continent.
Founded in 2008, the center serves as a conduit for the university’s many Africa initiatives in the sciences, arts, humanities, social sciences, engineering, and medicine.
The center is organized around five primary research initiatives— African Heritage and Humanities (AHHI), African Social Research (ASRI), Ethiopia-Michigan Collaborative Consortium (EMC2), Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM-Africa), U-M African Presidential Scholars (UMAPS) Program—that have been funded separately by the Office of the President and different stakeholders on campus.
