Washington University’s involvement in Africa spans more than two decades and includes research activities, education initiatives and community activities on the Danforth and Medical School campuses, throughout the St. Louis region and on the African continent.

With the recent launch of the Africa Initiative on our campus, McKelvey Engineering faculty, staff and students are more engaged than ever in fostering and expanding programs in Africa and helping to create opportunities for collaborations.

The McKelvey School of Engineering also continues to attract top talent from Africa in its undergraduate and graduate programs, and provides a supportive, inclusive environment for students to pursue their academic and professional goals.
