Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program Survey

As part of the upcoming  African Higher Education Summit on the Future of African Higher Education in March 2015 in Dakar, we are organizing a Diaspora Convening, comprised of African-born academics working in higher education in the Canada and US, for the November 2014 African Studies Association's (ASA) annual meeting. The goal of this convening is to develop a series of concrete recommendations that represent the Diaspora's voice(s) at the AHE Summit.

I am reaching out to you with a survey I hope you will share with African-born academics in your organization so that we can begin collecting contributions from the African academic diaspora in preparation for the 2014 ASA convening. The survey can be found here:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1681e7u0vaO82qB20y1qaYatjxZTnZXsjDv3PycwfMII/viewform

The survey should take no more than 5 minutes and is anonymous, though participants can provide their contact information if they are interested in participating in a panel at ASA on this topic.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and assistance in this request. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. With the insight from academics of the within the Association for the Study of the Worldwide African Diaspora, we look to develop a robust, engaging dialogue in November.
