‘The mission of the Africa Network is, in part, “to develop and enhance a lasting presence for Africa in the academic programs and campus life of the nation’s liberal arts institutions…[and]… to address the problem of pervasive and chronic neglect of Africa in independent higher education.” Historic changes in Africa over the past few years, signs of Africa’s economic vibrancy and its growing importance in global affairs all point to the importance of fulfilling our mission both on campus and in our communities. In addition, as we continue to promote the knowledge and understanding of Africa, we are being asked to engage in curricular assessment to measure the extent to which our institutions’ learning goals are being achieved and how we might raise that level of achievement. Teaching about Africa plays a critical role in the learning goals of all of our institutions. Assessment—this year’s conference theme—invites us to reflect on the ways in which we fulfill our mission on campus and in our communities and how that work, in turn, contributes to the achievement of our institutions’ learning goals.
