Rutgers University, home of the African Studies Association Secretariat, has a long history of commitment to the teaching of Africa through curricular and faculty development. The Center for African Studies informs a broader public through a vigorous outreach program of community projects and educators' workshops for K-12 teachers and coordinates a large number of Africa-related courses in various units throughout the university system. Building on its commitment to international education, Rutgers supports faculty research in Africa and encourages linkages with Africa-based scholars, institutions of higher learning, and non-governmental organizations.
