California State University - Office of International Programmes joined the University of Ghana Legon: International Programmes Office; the Institute of African Studies and the School of Arts in June 2018 in a faculty seminar on the theme “Ghana Calls”. The faculty and a very vibrant cross-section of participants presented and discussed topics as diverse as: How To Educate Africans with African Examples; How to Teach History in Africa; What to Consider When Doing Study Abroad Programmes in Africa; How the African Diaspora Negotiate Ghana; Agricultural Development in Northern Ghana; Sustainable Waste Management in Ghana; How Music Sustains Diasporas Memories; and much more.

This seminar appealed not only to academics as all participants discussed; debated; and challenged scholars, students and activists to critically examine the seminar’s five themes – Teaching Africa; Economics, Development & Governance; African Art, Image , and Literature; African Diaspora; and, Africa and the United States.

The seminar presented a wonderful cross-cultural exchange designed to topple prejudices, increase our understanding and to brainstorm how to motivate our students, colleagues and the public on solving problems and becoming better global citizens.
