Where Harvard and Africa meet.
Harvard's Committee on African Studies is the umbrella organization at Harvard for all things Africa. The Committee serves as an intellectual hub, connecting students, faculty, and the wider Africanist community. Since the Committee’s mission is to advance knowledge and understanding of Africa, the Committee on African Studies also sponsors: the Harvard African Seminar, research and travel to sub-Saharan Africa for faculty and students, lectures, conferences, and African musical performances.
