From January to December 2010, The Plight and Promise of Africa: An Eckerd College Initiative raised Africa's profile through academic study, activism and community consciousness by engaging the members of Eckerd's campus and the residents of Tampa Bay in classroom conversation and public discussion about Africa – a complex continent that affects our global conscience.
The Eckerd-Africa Initiative has bolstered Eckerd's reputation for providing robust academic and cultural programming as a commitment to its students and as a public service to the community. Enthusiasm for the Initiative resulted in the scheduling of 30-plus programs during the Spring 2010 semester and 20 programs during the Fall 2010 semester.
