African Studies Committee
The African Studies Committee is an informal group of students, staff, and faculty at Western Oregon University who are interested in Africa and African Studies. The committee encourages teaching and scholarship on Africa, with the goal of educating the campus and local community about Africa. The committee provides information about resources at Western Oregon University, including faculty and staff members with expertise in African studies, study abroad programs, internships, course offerings, and films. The committee also seeks funding to expand African studies resources and organizes campus and local community events pertaining to Africa. In addition, the committee supports faculty and student research on Africa and facilitates dissemination of research through the regularly held lectures and seminars.
