Photo of Wayne Decker PhD Wayne Decker is Founder and President of the Flame Tree Initiative, a Tucson-based non-profit that partners with African universities to train and launch development-focused social entrepreneurs. Flame Tree's intent is to create a network of university-based Centers for Development Entrepreneurship and Innovation that can launch hundreds of social enterprises that confront challenges of natural resources, agriculture, health, and women's empowerment. Wayne is also Professor Emeritus of Geography and Development at the University of Arizona, where he was Director of the Masters in Development Practice (MDP) program. His PhD from Johns Hopkins University is in international politics (political economy). He has held fellowships at Harvard and Stanford while researching and collaborating with others, inside and outside academia, to reduce US-Northeast Asian political, military and economic tensions. Dr. Decker was the founding Director of International Studies at Arizona (based in the Honors College) and previously held appointments as Associate Director of International Programs, where he built foreign study programs in China, Mexico, Brazil and Japan. Africa is witnessing a burst of progress based on entrepreneurship and innovation, and Wayne is anxious to assist people in understanding the dimensions of that progress and making connections that will get like-minded professionals involved in Africa at this transformative time.
