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 Community Engaged Learning.
We are holding our MSU Day of Service which coincides with the Day of Caring on Saturday, September 21, 2019. Each student will receive up to 5 hours of service.
The day includes light breakfast, Lunch, Event T-shirt, and Transportation to and from the service site!
Taking your undergraduate research overseas represents a unique opportunity to combine research and education abroad. This workshop will help you explore education abroad opportunities with a research component, as well as ways to fund your Research Abroad experience. A panel of students with previous participation in Education Abroad will be your guide during this workshop.
What is this conference about? This conference is about MSU students’ learning abroad experiences.
We define “learning abroad” to include: MSU students’ experiences in a study abroad program, international
students’ experiences at MSU, and U.S. students’ experiences with international students at MSU. The
conference is designed to give voice to students’ stories through a variety of creative media so that fellow
students and MSU faculty and staff may better understand the learning abroad experience.
Why would you want to participate? Here are a few great reasons why you should be involved:
• Gain valuable experience. Employers and graduate schools value conference presentations
• Take time to reflect on our learning abroad experience
• Share your story so that others may learn
• Connect with other students
Examples of presentations from last year’s conference:
