The CADFP Advisory Council is comprised of academic leaders from Africa and the African diaspora who offer strategic vision and approve projects. The Advisory Council's goal is to select projects that will facilitate equitable, effective and mutually beneficial international higher education engagements between scholars in Africa and African Diaspora academics in Canada and the United States. Multifaceted, innovative projects are encouraged, that are attuned to the transformations taking place in contemporary systems of higher education within the landscape of internationalization are encouraged.
