Our core values
Knowledge is power. Information is liberating.
– Kofi Annan
We aim to EDUCATE our members, and all those interested, about African and Caribbean history and its contemporary resonance. We also discuss aspects of modern culture such as politics, literature and music as well as developing the skills and knowledge that go alongside a successful career.
If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
– African Proverb
We EMPOWER our members through links to industry, providing them with resources to ensure their well-being and access to tools to aid their career prospects. CUACS endeavours not only to empower our members but also others and we do this by hosting events targeted at the reaching out to the next generation.
A united family eats from the same plate.
– Baganda proverb
Our events ENTERTAIN and stimulate integration and community. They are a celebration of African and Caribbean culture past and present. Previous events held include: Come Dine with Me, Champagne and Pizza Nights, and Culture Fest, our annual showcase of the very best talent and intellect which CUACS has to offer.
