Welcome to the George Clement Bond Center for African Education
The George Clement Bond Center for African Education promotes research and teaching about education, broadly defined, in Africa and the African Diaspora. Its central aim is to create a community of students, faculty, and staff with common interests and commitments to the fields of Education and African Studies. Interdisciplinary study and discussion across Teachers College and Columbia University are promoted through research projects, conferences, lecture series, and courses. The Center integrates the study of African education in different programs at the College. It also promotes linkages with African universities by hosting visiting scholars, policy makers, practitioners, and activists who will present their research and experience from different disciplinary and theoretical perspectives.

Human Rights Education Curriculum
The recently published Human Rights Education (HRE) Education curriculum was designed in the fall of 2016 by the Human Rights in Africa class. The module consists of five distinct but thematically linked HRE curricula designed for the African context. The class received help from UNESCO Dakar, UNESCO's civil society counterparts, Cheikh Anta Diop University of Dakar, Senegal, and the George C. Bond Center for African Education.
