Dr. Furusa has been an avid supporter of SOCG projects and is a respected faculty member at CSUDH serving in a variety of capacities including Chair of the Academic Senate. Over the years, Munashe has been instrumental in opening up the University to Los Angeles students who normally might not have an opportunity to experience life on a college campus and has personally participated in several programs as a guest speaker and facilitator.
In 2007, two Transition Institutes were hosted by CSUDH that included Thomas Jefferson High School and Edwin Markham Middle School. During these intensive three month projects, Munashe used his own life experiences growing up in Africa and the struggles he experienced as a tool for connecting with students seemingly a world apart.
Munashe was also instrumental in bringing university-level courses on mediation and cross-cultural understanding to neighboring secondary schools at no cost to the students and hosted several "Days of Dialogue" for thousands of students focusing on race relations and peaceful resolution of conflict. Dr. Furusa is an invaluable member of the SOCG team.
