Engaged Alumni and Friends

MSU Alumni

Michigan State has created diverse opportunities for alumni and friends to meaningfully engage with the university, from helping to recruit new Spartans and serving as mentors and role models to providing internships and supporting MSU through financial investments at all levels. Continuing a rich tradition of investment in MSU, more than 250,000 alumni, friends and organizational donors gave more than $1.8 billion in the university’s most recent comprehensive campaign—Empower Extraordinary—including support to establish more than 100 new endowed faculty positions and more than 3,500 new scholarships. MSU is building on this momentum to increase philanthropic support. The university will plan and initiate its next campaign to advance MSU’s margin of excellence in support of the pillars of its strategic plan with a focus on:

  • Significantly increasing student success across diverse platforms
  • Strengthening faculty academics and engagement
  • Magnifying creative research outcomes for the betterment of our global society
  • Intensifying programmatic impact with the exchange and exploration of new ideas
