More than two years have passed since 43 young adults were abducted and disappeared in southwest Mexico. Two family members connected to the incident, which involved drug gangs and authorities thought to be corrupt, visit Michigan State University today. We learn about their visit and problems facing Mexico.

For more than three decades, Lansing area elementary public schools have broadened student’s worlds by teaming with adults from around the globe. The greater Lansing area has a huge international community, with more than 100 countries represented on the MSU campus alone. Many of those people want to improve their English skills, and for many different reasons.

It’s Wednesday and time for our Neighbors in Action segment, where we feature people and organizations working to make our community a better place. Today we feature the International Friendship Program at Michigan State University, an organization that aims to ease the transition for international students and connect Lansing residents with the world by sponsoring cross-cultural friendships.
