MSU’s Canadian Studies Centre, established in 1958, is arguably the oldest program of its kind in the United States. It is comprised of over seventy core faculty members, graduate students from thirty-one departments, along with Library and Museum staff. The MSU Press publishes more scholarly books on Canada than any other university press in the United States. Known internationally as a major U.S. public university with global reach, Michigan State University has been advancing knowledge and transforming lives through innovative teaching, research, and outreach for over 150 years. Michigan State University is located in East Lansing, the cultural and recreational center of mid-Michigan. Its tradition of international research and outreach, combined with its recent successes in study abroad, provide fertile ground for making MSU a truly global university.
