Chronology of anti-apartheid activism at Michigan State University (MSU) in East Lansing and divestment actions by the Michigan Legislature in Lansing, the state capital, covering the period from 1972 to 2005. The chronology includes campaigns by the Southern Africa Liberation Committee (SALC), which was based both on the campus of MSU and in the East Lansing community, and successful divestment campaigns aimed at MSU in 1978 and at the MSU Foundation in 1985, and three successful state legislative campaigns concerning banks making loans to South Africa, investments by state-support universities, and investments by public employee pension funds. The chronology also includes several conferences and other initiatives at MSU about partnerships with institutions in South Africa.
