Get Involved


Join the Conversation! 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.

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

Global Africa The global African diaspora is expanding – an expansion that sees the possibilities in connecting and creating a more mutually beneficial process of globalization. Africa today is a powerful economic and cultural force. Explore the world starting here.  

Unity in Diversity Experience the diversity of Africa’s people and places as well as what brings them together, from the arts to agriculture to emerging technologies.  

Partnership During the Year of Global Africa we highlight the importance of reciprocal partnerships that honor different ways of knowing in the search for ways of acting in the world together.
