Invest in MSU's Canadian Studies Center

Canada is arguably one of the most important geographic, political and economic partners to the United States. The Canadian Studies Center connects the MSU community with Canadian organizations, working together to address global challenges through collaborative education, outreach and research. The Center develops strategic partnerships with Canadian organizations—cultivating relationships with Canadian faculty, scholars and experts; facilitating student opportunities in Canada; and engaging with Canada in MSU classrooms.

Your support for the Canadian Studies Center will strengthen the longstanding scholarly relationships between MSU and Canadian faculty and help facilitate new research opportunities in Canada, the United States and around the world. With your help, we can also empower a new generation of students to explore and understand Canada through enriching experiences, including education abroad, study away, and internship and fellowship opportunities.
