Cheikh Anta Diop University

Université Cheikh Anta Diop - Dakar

Chiekh Anta Diop University, or UCAD, as it is commonly known, is the largest and most historic university in Senegal, with roots that extend all the way back into the colonial period.  It’s massive size – over 60,000 Students in six Departments, ten Research Institutes, and five professional Training Centers – means that every facet of the world of Senegalese professionals feels its influence.  Its research departments in pure science are among the best in West Africa.  As they recently modernized their requirements for their doctoral programs, their input was especially significant when we instituted our own program for curriculum development at the universities of Thies and Ziguinchor.  Most of our own work with them orients around basic research, with additional collaborations taking place in e-learning and extension.
