About AASP

The AASP is an organization made up of the Deans, Directors, Chairpersons, Committee Heads, or individuals who have the responsibility for organizing or leading the African Studies program at their college or university. Members range from Directors of the large Title VI centers to colleagues who keep the flame of African Studies alive in quite isolated settings.


AASP activities are supported by extremely modest dues, ranging from $50 to $300 per year, depending upon the size of your program. The main work of the AASP is carried out on a voluntary basis by the Chair and Vice-Chair of the AASP who serve two-year terms.
