Project Background—Building the Foundation

For several years, the African University Foundation has been formulating ideas, relationships, and plans to develop African University near the small village of Tali in Cameroon, Africa. Earlier this year, Schmidt Associates was selected to create a campus master plan for the new university. The private, non-profit university campus will provide excellence in education by:
  • Providing excellent spaces for higher education and life-long learning
  • Showcasing and living by the principles of sustainability, as well as the values of integrity, creativity, and excellence
  • Being a premiere example of conservation
  • Planning for a coherent and beautiful campus that respects the contextual environment
The 50-year Campus Master Plan preserves and reinforces the surrounding rain forest environment, develops and maintains a cohesive campus landscape, and sets the framework for future development in an orderly fashion.
