Duke's global centers & initiatives

Africa Initiative


The Africa Initiative (AI) is a faculty-led initiative that brings together scholars, from across Duke University and the Duke University Health System, who have a shared interest, through their research or programmatic activities, in the countries and cultures of the African continent. The goals of the initiative are to:

  • build connections between schools, programs, institutes and departments;
  • continue to foster new collaborations across disciplines;
  • transport existing knowledge gained whether in Durham or the African continent to other Duke locations around the globe;
  • and explore and pursue new funding opportunities and sponsored research.
