AAP Convening

Alliance for African Partnership Convening

May 9-12, 2016 • East Lansing, Michigan, USA

MSU hosted a co-creation workshop to engage invited African guests and MSU faculty in open discussion and collaboration on the changing landscape in Africa and the future of institutional partnerships. This workshop provided an opportunity for the MSU community and African leaders to come together to share and build upon ideas about partnership, provide meaningful feedback, and identify the best approaches for building the AAP. 



The Alliance for African Partnership Convening brought distinguished invitees from Africa to work alongside MSU faculty, students, and staff to find innovative ways to address the emerging challenges facing the African continent. Read participant profiles >
