In celebrating the 60th Anniversary of this Society, we have also taken a moment to reflect both on the Society’s achievements and its opportunities for growth. It is in this context that the 2018-2019 Committee has chosen to focus on issues related to gender equity and welfare, women’s empowerment and pan-africanism. We have also made a deliberate step towards broadening our partnerships and collaborations. These will advance our mission of:
– increasing access to an Oxford education for students from Africa and the Diaspora
– supporting and highlighting the academic pursuits of our current members and creating space for their holistic enjoyment of their time at Oxford
– sustaining engagement and honoring the contributions of previous AfriSoc members and alumniof the University from across the Diaspora who overcame perceivably insurmountable odds to pursue an education at the University of Oxford.
