Outreach to Government

The Outreach Program seeks to provide assistance and respond to African initiatives at the local, state and federal levels in the United States. Since 2004 the outreach program has worked collaboratively with the other MSU National Resource Centers in initiating an annual seminar Michigan and the Global Economy, for state of Michigan legislators, state departments, and their aides. The ASC also works closely with the Greater Lansing Sister Cities program with their sister cities linkages with Ghana. In summer 2008 MSU co-sponsored the bi-annual African Sister Cities Conference that was hosted in Lansing, Michigan.
