Partnerships & Programs


Michigan State University partners with communities, organizations and businesses throughout the state of Michigan. Here are just some of the many ways MSU is working in this region:


Innovation is a Spartan state of mind

For Michigan State University Spartans, entrepreneurship is more than a skill or discipline—it’s a mindset. It’s a way of thinking and working that opens doors, creates connections and accelerates innovation across disciplines. Spartan innovators imagine a better world, then work to make it a reality. MSU supports them by connecting them to experienced business leaders and start-up funding opportunities and by cultivating university-wide entrepreneurship programs and community collaborations.

MSU’s Upper Peninsula Research and Extension Center

At Michigan State University’s AgBioResearch Upper Peninsula Research and Extension Center in Chatham, Michigan, field staff and researchers help people learn practical ways to farm in challenging conditions. MSU has had a presence there since 1899, and as farmers and their needs have evolved since then, so too have the resources and technological advancements MSU offers. From small organic farms to large conventional operations, the extension center’s North and South Farms support Michigan growers who put food on our tables. Ashley McFarland is the MSU Extension coordinator for the Upper Peninsula Research and Extension Center. Collin Thompson is the MSU North Farm manager. (See More)

Titled “The Great State Road Trip: Exploring MSU’s Impact Across Michigan,” the journey spans three weeks and seven cities showcasing Spartan doctors, scientists, creators and educators, and the transformative work they do every day.

MSU AgBioResearch announces field day schedule for summer 2017

Members of the community and Michigan’s agriculture industry are invited to tour several of the Michigan State University research facilities this summer during the annual field day festivities. (Read More)

Michigan ArtShare and Michigan State University Extension announce a “Call for Art” program

Michigan ArtShare is creating a “Looking-At-Art-Images” education program named ArtShare, utilizing a ‘critical thinking practice’ called Visual Thinking Strategies. The project goal is to use narrative images created exclusively by Michigan artists for the students to view using the VTS method, instead of using images from art history or other states or countries. This enables Michigan’s children to become more visually literate and creative problem solvers, and they will do so by looking at professional Michigan artist’s images and becoming more familiar with their work.

Pres. Simon’s testimony to the House Appropriations Higher Education Subcommittee

On March 23rd, President Lou Anna K. Simon testified before the House Appropriations Higher Education Subcommittee and made her case for MSU. "By supporting public higher education, you support Michigan residents’ ability to compete in a global knowledge economy. By supporting Michigan State, you are supporting our three-dimensional mission of education, research and service to Michigan communities. Michigan citizens deserve to have high expectations, together with the actual means to achieve them. With your support, MSU is committed to doing just that. (Read More)

Today’s young leaders: Ganna Omar – Part 1

Every time I hear someone use the phrase “Youth are the leaders of tomorrow,” I grit my teeth. As a community-based educator with a focus on helping young people to develop leadership, civic engagement and citizenship skills, I frequently hear adults—and occasionally some youth—use this seemingly common phrase. I grit my teeth because the stories of people like Ganna Omar, a 15-year old from Michigan’s Houghton County, are apparently not known by very many people. (Read more)

Tapping century-old Spartan barley

MSU’s agricultural roots are infusing Michigan’s robust beer industry with the revival of Spartan barley. The variety, boasting superior qualities and well suited to Michigan’s climate, was developed 100 years ago at MSU and made its way into fields across the country. Recently, an MSU AgBioResearch agronomist and his team revived the barley from heirloom seed and partnered with New Holland Brewing Co. to create a limited-edition beer. Brewing with this storied grain is a toast to Spartans’ significant contributions to Michigan agriculture and economic prosperity. Cheers! (See more)
