Refugee Development Center
The Refugee Development Center (RDC) is a grassroots organization offering formal and informal learning opportunities in an open and inclusive setting. The RDC opened in 2002 because the Greater Lansing community identified service area gaps for newcomer populations seeking self-sufficiency.
Thanks to the efforts of our donors and volunteers, Greater Lansing Food Bank works to make sure our neighbors have enough to eat. As the region’s food bank hub, we supply food pantries, churches, community kitchens and more. As an equal opportunity provider, we respect each individual’s dignity and basic rights.
The Salus Center serves Lansing’s LGBTQIA+ communities as a gathering space and information hub, and we advocate for the rights of our community members by honoring and affirming the interconnectedness of oppression. We empower you to build on the legacy of LGBTQIA+ activism and manifest a life that is authentic, safe, and full.
The Office for International Students and Scholars (OISS) provides support to Michigan State University’s international students, scholars and families. Serving as a liaison with U.S. government agencies, foreign embassies, sponsors and educational foundations that support international students and scholars.
