Institutional memberships are a valuable partnership between ASWAD and academic and other institutions whose work advances the study of the African diaspora. Towards that end, ASWAD makes available discounts to faculty at member institutions, and promotes the work of our associates through acknowledgements in our programs, publicity and links on our website. We also create opportunities for graduate students at affiliated institutions to become involved in organizational administration, networking, and mentoring workshops.
