Pan-African Studies

The Department of Pan-African Studies offers a comprehensive, holistic, academic experience grounded in the knowledge base, cultural norms, traditions, and histories of diverse groups of people of African descent, whether on the African continent or within the African Diaspora.

We also seek to educate and inform the Kent State University and larger community about African and African derived cultural expressions, and in so doing, strengthening student and departmental ties with the larger community.
