The nationally-recognized African Studies outreach program offers in-service/professional workshops and seminars, Africa study-tours, summer programs for students, on-line curriculum and audio-visual materials, museum exhibitions, and more.
Established in 1977, the MSU Outreach Program has become a nationally-recognized leader in outreach among National Resource Centers for Area Studies and Foreign Languages.
We serve faculty and students in many community and four-year colleges and universities, as well as teacher educators, K-12 teachers and students, media producers and users, students seeking to study in Africa, the business community, civic and religious organizations, state and federal agencies, and the general public.
The K-12 outreach program links cooperating international units at MSU with community-based, statewide and national consortia in K-12 and higher education.
The African Studies center promotes collaboration and partnership with many institutions in higher education including community colleges and historically black colleges and universities. The center also focuses on internationalizing teacher education, collaborative study abroad initiatives, and houses MSU's African Media Program.
The African Studies Center also administers outreach programs related to business, government, and community.
