The Center for Africana Studies at Central Connecticut State University develops and encourages the study and teaching of Africa, African Americans, and people of African descent throughout the Diaspora. The center promotes and advances a better understanding of the African and African-American experience among Africans in the Diaspora; expands the understanding of the ideas, knowledge, experiences, and approaches to the study of Africa and the Diaspora; promotes research, consultation, and community service among the CCSU faculty, students, and scholars in the community and throughout the world about Africa and people of African descent; provides undergraduate and graduate instruction about Africa, African Americans, and people of African descent around the world; educates the neighboring communities and engages them in understanding the African experience; provides mentoring and tutoring programs for students on campus and in the community; and develops international support systems for students and scholars of Africana studies.

The Center for Africana Studies sees student participation in its activities as crucial to achieve its goals. In addition, it sees its extracurricular activities as critical both to student and faculty development and in ensuring that the community is well informed about Africa and Africans in the Diaspora.
