Welcome to the Center for African Studies!
The Center for African Studies (CAS) is excited and proud to announce that we are entering into a new phase in pursuit of our core academic mission of research and teaching linked to the African continent and its diaspora. Since its founding in 1969, CAS’s mandate has been to focus on faculty, graduate, and undergraduate research and education. CAS is situated within Stanford Global Studies, an entity comprised of 14 regional and transnational research centers, including CAS. The core mission of these centers is research and teaching, in alignment with the School of Humanities and Sciences.
