ACUSAfrica hosted its first colloquium in February of 2021. Entitled "Critical University Studies and the Battle Against Global Racism", the aim of the colloquium was to build the ACUSAfrica network to advance critical and radical approaches to the study of higher education through a combination of practical and intellectual work.

As such, it was constituted of three sessions, which located the colloquium within the intentions to 1) build the network, especially in Africa; 2) grapple with questions of the study of the university within the African context; and 3) engage with the battle against global racism, especially as it plays out in higher education.

The colloquium featured provocations by Paul Zeleza and Shirley Anne Tate.
