THE AFRICA GLOBAL INITIATIVE
The continent of Africa is fueled by the promise presented by its youth and its dynamism. Its population is predicted to double from 1.2 billion by 2050. Africa’s 54 countries are incredibly diverse, whether from a linguistic, economic, or cultural perspective– from North to South, East, and West, Africa’s civil-society sector is vigorous. The Northeastern University Africa Global Initiative will mutually empower its African students, alumni, faculty, staff, and partners.
Since high school, Stephanie Beja has known that she was interested in studying cultures around the world—and visiting as many as she could. During her undergraduate career at Northeastern, Beja took advantage of opportunities to study abroad.

Chair of the Africa Global Initiative
“This collaborative effort will build strong, mutually beneficial connections between our wonderful university and outstanding African partners. Through the AGI, we will increase African student enrollment in Northeastern programs and leverage existing or new partnerships with academic institutions, alumni, and employers to promote research, educational, and experiential opportunities.
