Morgan Summer Program Mentors Young African Leaders

Twenty-five young leaders from 18 African countries are on the campus of Morgan State University during June and July taking part in a multi-disciplinary learning experience. The Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) comes to Morgan’s Public Management Institute to explore some of the key issues facing communities around the world including financial management, public health, the environment and policy analysis.

Morgan’s Public Management Summer Program, which began on Monday, June 16, 2014 with an opening ceremony, runs throughJuly 25, 2014 with activities planned daily. Program participants will tour several Baltimore and Maryland educational venues, complete a leadership training program, learn about environmental and cross-cultural issues and their impact on society, and effective communication skills. During the six-week program, the YALI leaders are expected to learn about key issues and best practices in public management that they can take back to their home countries.

The public management program is part of Morgan State University’s Public Management Institute,with support from the School of Engineering and the MSU Institute for Urban Research.
