INTERNATIONAL FACULTY SEMINAR

The International Faculty Seminar provides junior and senior faculty at UNCF member colleges and universities with an opportunity to enhance their teaching and/or scholarship in an international setting. Preference is given to junior faculty. The seminars are designed to promote meaningful links between teaching and research, to create a community of inquiry across cultures, disciplines and institutions within the historical and cultural context of the African Diaspora and to provide effective models of interdisciplinary teaching and scholarship. Locations for the International Seminar have included the Goree Institute in Dakar, Senegal; the University of Ghana in Kumasi; the University of Cape Town in South Africa and various institutions in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil and Nantes and Paris, France. In addition, locations for domestic Seminars have included Atlanta, GA and Albuquerque, NM.
