The #DigitalAfrica Fellowship is an important part of ADMI’s mission to deliver transformative academic practice and school-to-work programs that promote Africa’s digital and creative economies. It allows early- or mid-career professionals from across the globe to apply their expertise to a series of artistic, research, financing or teaching projects that benefit the Institute and the Foundation.
While accountable for quality of deliverables, and often focused on solving existing challenges the ADMI community is facing, Fellows are encouraged to exploit their time at ADMI as an opportunity for self-discovery, shaping their own learning and service experience.
Student Success Advisors (SSAs) support the success of all of our students by ensuring they know whom to go to when they need guidance, assistance, or just someone to talk to. SSAs work proactively to develop connections with their students, especially during their first semester of enrollment. Thereafter, SSAs work with assigned students to promote the development of skills needed to succeed in college, linking them to available resources and providing personal support as needed. They also offer supplemental academic advising to students in their area of expertise.
