Each year, MSU SHRM encourages MSU SHRM Conference attendees to donate to a non-profit organization.

This year, our charity is the Refugee Development Center.


Refugee Development Center

Mission Statement: to cultivate a welcoming, thriving community that collaborates with refugees and newcomers through education, engagement, and support.

History: 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. The common denominator in the gaps identified revolved around education, and hence, the mission of the center was born. Today, the RDC helps serve as the link between newcomer populations and the private, public, and faith-based communities of Ingham County and the Lansing area.
