Georgetown University has significant academic and outreach relationships in Africa.

Across schools and departments, Georgetown faculty are involved in multidisciplinary research and teaching on Africa's history, development, politics, and culture. The African Studies Program, housed in the School of Foreign Service, is a hub for much of this activity.
