Who We Are

The Alliance for African Partnership (AAP) is a consortium of 10 of the leading African universities and Michigan State University (MSU) that was established in 2016 that builds on MSU’s over 60 year history of collaborating with African institutions. Our goal is to co-create innovative solutions to global challenges with our members, working collaboratively with other international partners to transform lives in Africa.  

Our governance structure consists of AAP's management offices based at Michigan State University (MSU) and in Lilongwe, Malawi, our consortium member institutions, our advisory board and the Associate Provost and Dean for International Studies and Programs at MSU.
