CMU-Africa is here to support and foster your intellectual and personal growth and help you explore and experience the different aspects of life. Recruitment and Student Services at CMU-Africa meet regularly with student body leaders. They discuss their ongoing needs and develop ways to enrich the student experience, which includes informing the leaders about new opportunities as well as providing support for student-led projects.
