The African Studies Program Gift Fund has been established to support research, training, outreach, and student scholarships in the general cross-disciplinary field of African studies.
Our faculty – we now number 70 members in 30 different departments – has, over the years, produced path-breaking research on African history, politics, legal systems, land resources, arts, culture, and languages. While maintaining these strengths, we have moved in the 21st century toward supporting research and training in business, law, the sciences, public health, and medicine in Africa.
Africa courses on the Madison campus reach 4,000 undergraduates annually. About 120 Africanist graduate students are training at Wisconsin in a multitude of disciplines to provide coming generations the Africa expertise that our nation and the world require.
September 2011 will marked the 50th anniversary of the founding of the African Studies Program. Gifts made between December 2009 and December 2012 will be credited to our 50th Anniversary fund drive.
