Together, the alumni of our seven partner universities comprise a global network of dynamic individuals who are making important contributions to society and industry. This group of nearly 5,000 graduates have found success in a wide array of fields inside Africa as well as in the diaspora such as IT, medicine and public health, finance, rural economic development, law, education, and others.

As this exciting project continues, we hope to draw attention to the remarkable individual contributions being made by our alumni through a series of alumni profiles. These short features will give the broader community a sense of the diverse career and life trajectories that our alumni have pursued, as well as the overall contributions they have made on the African Continent and around the world. We begin with a few alumni profiles from our partner universities:

If you would like to volunteer to be profiled, or if you would like to nominate an alum of one of our partner universities, please let us know by contacting us. If you would like more information about the alumni profile process, our FAQ includes a number of important details that may be helpful.
