Ubuntu Student Dialogues

The African Studies Center is excited to offer an opportunity for MSU students to participate in a series of facilitated virtual conversations with students in South Africa as part of the Ubuntu Dialogues.

The student dialogues will include 10 MSU and 10 Stellenbosch University students per year engaging in facilitated virtual conversations on contemporary issues facing young people across the continents. These issues may include, but are not limited to, the meaning of Ubuntu, Pan-Africanism, and knowledge and institutional decolonization as concepts and practice. The dialogues are intended to rethink boundaries and differences, foster cross-cultural understanding, and promote the resolution of real and imagined differences through dialogue.

If you're interested in this program or have questions, please contact Upenyu Majee or come visit the Center in the International Center, room 100!
