They provide a wide-range of resources, services and programs to K-12 teachers, and students, post-secondary insititutions across Illinois, our local Urbana - Champaign and Central Illinois communities; and to the general public, to community and public organizations, businesses and media outlets.
They work collaboratively with our constituents to investigate, narrate and celebrate global African life, cultures and knowing.
