The University of Illinois hopes to strengthen its connections with Africa through new partnerships.

Officials from U of I met with universities in Africa.

African government officials were eager to work with the university.

They hope connections with 'South Africa Universities' will result in more research partnerships and more enrollments from African students.

Last Fall the campus had more than 100 students from Africa.
