MSU and Africa – The past, present and future of partnership

On August 31, 2020 distinguished African alumni and current African students joined in discussion of the history of MSU partnership in Africa and shared visions for the next generation of Africa-MSU connection.  From our founding partnership with the University of Nigeria at Nsukka sixty years ago through to the present, the MSU African Studies Center has promoted ethical partnerships that can transform lives and livelihoods.  In this session our alumni and students share their unique experiences at MSU to reflect on how we can continue to strengthen this legacy as we move forward to address shared challenges together.  The session is facilitated by Jamie Monson, Director of the MSU African Studies Center.
