Rhodes University was awarded a University of Bayreuth (UBT) African Cluster Centre (ACC), as part of UBT’s Africa Multiple Centre of Excellence in October 2019. It is one of the four such African Cluster Centres. The other institutions that are in the Cluster are Université Ouaga I, aka Joseph Ki-Zerbo University (Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso), Moi University (Eldoret, Kenya), and the Institute of African and Diaspora Studies at the University of Lagos (Lagos, Nigeria).

Rhodes University, the UBT and the rest of the Cluster system will work together to:
The ultimate goal is to Reconfigure African Studies.
