Adopting SU’s new visual identity perfectly aligned to the Africa Centre’s vision

The new SU logo introduced in 2021 marked the start of a new era of continued world-class academics and the aspiration to be Africa’s leading research-intensive university by 2040. In addition, the logo elements represent the warmth and vibrancy of the African continent and the array of cultures and languages it embodies.

The directive to align the visual identities of internal faculties and departments with the new SU logo was a natural fit for the Africa Centre. The centre has welcomed students from all across sub-Saharan Africa (and further abroad) over the years. In addition, conducting and sharing research on managing HIV and Aids effectively in the world of work and communities is one of the pillars of the centre’s work and its objectives to support, educate and advocate. The Africa Centre is proud to have the distinctive maroon that sets SU apart from its competitors in its name and to associate with the commitment to research excellence.
