What is a Community Member?

The Africa Center community is a global network of over 5,000 professionals who have participated in various Africa Center programs. While other institutions use terms like “alumni,” the Africa Center prefers to call these individuals “community members” to reinforce the long-term and mutually rewarding relationships between the Africa Center and its community throughout the world. The Africa Center works to maintain and enhance the relationships forged during its programs through a variety of efforts.

ACSS community members include current and former African heads of state; senior officials from U.S. and African governments; senior military leaders; ambassadors and diplomats; policy makers; academics; health and disaster management professionals; directors of international and regional organizations; and civil society leaders.
