College of Liberal Arts and Sciences

The Kansas African Studies Center coordinates and develops interdisciplinary interests in all areas of African Studies across the University of Kansas, and promotes an understanding of Africa and its diaspora in the university, the state of Kansas, the Midwest, and beyond. The Center's mission includes the enhancement of curriculum, the sponsorship of research, the organization of conferences, the promotion of special projects, the acquisition of library and related resources, and the implementation of outreach programs. KASC actively pursues funding opportunities to make these activities possible and assist the university in their realization.
