About the Commission
Morgantown's Sister Cities Commission (MSSC) is part of a much larger network that falls under the auspices of Sister Cities International. It involves more than 2,500 communities in 126 countries of the world.
The mission of the Sister Cities program, and the MSSC, is to "promote peace through mutual respect, understanding and cooperation - one individual, one community at a time."
About the Program
The City of Morgantown and the MSSC strive to develop relationships with places and then extend hospitality to visitors through programs that encourage the entire community to become involved in citizen diplomacy and help Morgantown develop as a global community. The program strives to promote friendship, goodwill, and cooperation through cultural exchanges between different places.
