African Leadership University (ALU) is a higher learning institution that re-imagines education to prepare ethical and entrepreneurial leaders for Africa. We challenge the status quo and make discoveries that reshape the future of Africa. Our students pursue self directed projects, internships and practical learning experiences which prepare them to take on fulfilling careers the moment they graduate. With two campuses in Kigali, Rwanda and Port Louis, Mauritius as well as a growing network of hubs across the continent, ALU students and graduates become part of a community where diversity of all kinds is celebrated, nurtured, and valued. When students study at ALU, they get a world-class education that prepares them to immediately join the workforce, launch ventures, or create social impact.


The AFP was developed to accommodate our growing enrollment of students on both campuses. While we will always have a core of faculty aligned to our required courses, we are now trying to grow both the range of courses available to our students and the depth of the scholarship that we can offer. The AFP will allow us to achieve both.

With the AFP, we can reach around the globe to draw in the faculty best aligned to our teaching model, our rotating intake calendar and our Pan-African orientation. Periodically, we will put out a call for faculty to teach an array of already designed modules as well as to design new courses in certain subject areas. Interested faculty will be asked to submit their CV, in the first instance, or their CV plus a course syllabus, in the second. If you are a match for us, we will enter into a contract for the services to be provided.

With the latter new course design, the modules can be short-term boot camps (~2 weeks), medium-term workshops (~6-7 weeks) or full-length courses (12-13 weeks). As long as they align to our degree programs and meet out standards of academic rigor, the courses will be considered. These modules will be designed to be delivered online, asynchronously, synchronously or hybrid, to offer adjunct faculty the maximum flexibility in delivery options. Thank you in advance for considering what we think will be an exciting new way for ALU to engage with innovative, forward-thinking faculty worldwide.
