AAP Public Dialogue Series-"COVID-19 Pandemic: Responses & lessons learned from African universities

As nations continue to come to terms with coping and finding solutions to the challenges that have beset them with the onslaught of COVID-19, the Alliance for African Partnership has established a public dialogue series with speakers including the Vice Chancellors, researchers and other relevant staff at AAP consortium universities, as well as representatives of the public and private sector, funding partners, think tanks, and NGOs, among others. Partnering with the MSU African Studies Center, the Tanzania Partnership Program, and University World News - Africa, the AAP will host a series of six virtual dialogues throughout the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic covering a variety of topics and themes. All are welcomed to attend these virtual webinars and submit questions for featured panelists.
