New Year's Greetings from Alliance for African Partnership (AAP)

Alliance for African Partnership (AAP) wishes our members, partners, and colleagues a very happy New Year! As we welcome the new year, we also want to reflect on accomplishments and achievements over the last year. Here are some of our 2021 highlights:

Looking forward to 2022, we are excited to welcome the third cohort of the African Futures scholars as we continue to support our second cohort, who are currently halfway through the program. We are also delighted to continue our AAP Public Dialogues Series with new conversations on climate change, global health, and arts and culture, kicking off in February. In addition, we will continue to support our PIRA grantees to ensure the cultivation of multidirectional and transregional research partnerships. We also plan on updating AAP Bridge to include features like events, suggestions, and file sharing. AAP will continue and expand discussions begun last year with the Southern African Development Community (SADC) about collaboration on key priorities in addressing the regional integration agenda through higher learning institutions. Finally, we are thrilled to launch the Diverse Black Africa program, a pilot program to foster new collaborations and strengthen existing ties between Black African Diaspora faculty and academic staff at Michigan State University with Black colleagues based at African universities in the AAP consortium.


With the new year underway, we are eager to build on our past successes and continue to co-create solutions to global challenges with our consortium members and stakeholders.

The best of NEMRA Africa, right in your inbox.
