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.

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.

County, MSU partnership is strong

Michigan State University Extension reached 4,197 residents in Huron County through various programs in 2016. Joe Bixler, MSU Extension District 10 coordinator, presented the 2015-16 annual report to the Huron County Board of Commissioners this week. The county’s share of the budget was $167,392, and MSU’s share was $292,241. “(This) represents the 2016 county budget, not 2017,” Bixler said. “2017 is higher as a result of your additional contribution to fund a full-time 4-H program coordinator as our partner. The MSU contribution is a bit more than yours, and next year that gap will narrow as a result of your additional contribution.” (Read more)
