Special Initiatives

ARC’s mission is reflected through a range of initiatives that represent the development of Africana scholarship across age range, academic level, and the diaspora.

Two ARC programs focus on post-graduate development—the Humanities Dissertation Fellowship Program and the Post-Doctoral Fellowship Program—while the annual lecture series were developed to share with the Penn State community the scholarly work of noted Africanist and African Americanist civil rights activists.  The ARC also routinely co-sponsors events and undergraduate research that supports their mission.
