As part of a long tradition of community and K-12 outreach, the African Studies Program is pleased to launch its annual OUTREACH SCHOLAR program for the 2015-16 academic year.
Outreach Scholars are UW-Madison graduate and undergraduate students with extensive experience living, working, or studying in Africa. They are trained to enrich school curricula and community events by sharing their area studies expertise, life stories, or artistic skills. As they facilitate learning experiences that go beyond the textbook, Outreach Scholars expand students’, teachers’, and community members’ understanding of different African contexts.
To invite an Outreach Scholar to your school or community event, please contact the African Studies Outreach Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org / 608.265.9151).
