WELCOME

COME JOIN US FOR THE 2014 AERN SUMMIT IN NIGERIA. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION


AERN was founded in 1992 by a group of US and African universities meeting on the campus of Clark Atlanta University in Atlanta, Georgia. It is a non-profit making network dedicated solely to the dissemination of information on Africa.  Since no part of the world can live in isolation, we try to link our resources to cover other parts of the world. To that end, the main projects of AERN include the THE AFRICAN SYMPOSIUM, our on-line African Educational Research Journal and a variety of other activities to promote and support African-based scholars.

AERN Update: Submitted by Dr. David Adewuyi, June 2011:

The implementation of the decisions reached at the October 18, 2010 Ohio University mini-summit has started on a very impressive note. To refresh our memories, the decisions are:

 

  • Individual membership of AERN will be one-time payment of US$100. Members will have the benefit of attending and presenting papers at AERN summits, and publishing original research articles in The African Symposium.

  • Management institutions of AERN in USA and Africa will contribute at least US$2,500 each to the coffers of the Network for administrative and logistic operations of the Secretariat.

  • Institutional membership (that is, institutions other than the management institutions) will contribute at least US$1,000. These institutions will have free access to archival materials on AERN website.

 

            I am happy to report that at the time of going to press, some management institutions, including Virginia Union University, Ohio University, University of Swaziland, and Uganda Martyrs University, have paid their dues either in part or in full. Other management institutions are already negotiating with their authorities to remit their contributions. Ten faculty members from Federal College of Education, Kano, Nigeria, each sent in US$100 and their names have already been added to the list serve of the Network. The contributions are kept in an account set up at the Secretariat. Other institutions yet to contribute and individuals interested in contributing should contact the Managing Editor at daadewuyi@vuu.edu for information on remittance.

 

            AERN was established in 1992. The AERN Secretariat is contemplating celebrating the 20 year anniversary of the Network in 2012. An organizing and implementation committee, with members from USA and Africa, will soon be inaugurated to commence planning for the event. Individual members, AERN institutions in USA and Africa will be actively engaged in the event; the more reason why those who have not paid should do so immediately, so as to take advantage of the incentives of membership at the event.
