On November 4, 2017 Michigan State University launched the Year of Global Africa. This 18-month celebration highlights MSU's rich history of connection with our many partners across Africa and throughout the African Diaspora. Visit Year of Global Africa website at

Throughout the Year of Global Africa, MSU colleges, departments, programs and organizations are all invited to work closely with the Year of Africa team to create activities and programs connected to our three core themes: Global Africa, Unity in Diversity, and Partnership.


These themes honor the many rich traditions of the continent while shining a light on Africa's Bright future.
