The Uthman dan Fodio Institute was founded in 1981. Originally UdFI was founded as an Elementary and High School to service youth in the Chicago area. In the 1990's UdFI added to its mission research into educational issues and Afro-Asian studies.
The educational ideas of Uthman don Fodio were used as the educational philosophy of the school These educational ideas which encouraged the use of metacognition and co-construction of knowledge by our students served as the organizing principals for educational change and learning for students at UdFI.
Today Staff at UdFI continues to be interested in the education of youth in Chicago, and provides Tutoring services for youth with reading and math problems.
Staff at UdFI are presently developing a Distance Learning course which will allow people with internet access an ancient Afrocentric History course.
