Spartans Will Serve: Global Day of Service @ Michigan State University
Apr 13 all-day
Spartans Will Serve: Global Day of Service @ Michigan State University

When you’re a Spartan, you’re part of something far bigger than campus’ 5,200 acres. We’re a global community more than 550,000 strong, and we’re passionate about making the world a better place. Spartans have a proud tradition of service – many MSU alumni are inspired to serve in their personal and professional lives. This extends to our alumni clubs, employers, individuals, and MSU, who are actively involved in their communities. Additionally, thousands of students give back each year through campus’ Center for Service-Learning and Civic Engagement.

SPARTANS WILL. SERVE is a year-round initiative, and is our way of showing the world the extraordinary impact Spartans make through service. This organized, collaborative effort brings Spartans together to serve others in their communities while demonstrating the reach and power of the Spartan network.

Every year in April, as part of the SPARTANS WILL. SERVE initiative, there is a Global Day of Service to harness the power of this spirit of service, and demonstrate what Spartans can do in a single day. This year’s Global Day of Service will be held on April 13, 2019.

Since 2013, SPARTANS WILL. SERVE has been a great success. Nearly 45,000 hours of service have been donated by more than 9,000 volunteers in 725 locations. These volunteers have provided a collective impact valued at $1,007,282 to their causes.
