The Center for Africana Studies (CAfS) serves as a space of intellectual community, and as a primary scholarly resource for OSU students, faculty, staff, and the broader public, in pursuit of knowledge on the Black Diaspora. Our mission is to foster systematic, critical analyses of the multi-faceted and multi-disciplinary realms of the Black experience, centered in the U.S. and inclusive of the global diaspora.
The Center’s core and affiliated faculty teach a wide variety of courses that serve the Africana Studies Minor degree, general education and elective requirements. CAfS offers a presence and course offerings on the Stillwater and Tulsa campuses. We also host a wide variety of community-centered academic programming.
