A group of 23 educators from the African nation of Senegal are currently visiting the campus of Tuskegee University in Alabama under a program sponsored by the United States Agency for International Development. The Senegalese educators are learning how Tuskegee University forms partnerships with local industry and agriculture concerns. The African educators have been paired with Tuskegee faculty members who teach in similar disciplines. The visitors will remain at Tuskegee until May 11.
The visitors from Senegal represent the University of Dakar, the University of St. Louis, and the University of Ziguinchor.
