MSU's African Studies Center is a multi-disciplinary academic unit that develops and disseminates knowledge relevant to understanding the African continent. It provides language instruction in an average of 12 African languages per year; disseminates information to the public that is clear and contextualized around the social, political, and economic dynamics of the African continent; works with local community organizations that have an African focus; and creates new knowledge through its support of research, print publications, and digital media presentations. Its consistent priority is to bring into being the next generation of African experts, be they academicians, policy makers, or applied practitioners, on the continent of Africa itself.
