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.

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

"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)

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)

MSU Extension is offering a program called Newest Economic Realities in Agriculture: Building Your Farm’s Plan. This program is designed to help everyone, from a novice to an advanced farmer, to understand your business’ numbers. (Read more)

MSU project helps school officials find most effective programs

One-third of Michigan’s public school administrators have nowhere to go for information about programs to help students deal with bullying and managing their emotions or building healthy relationships, according to a recent study by the Michigan School Program Information Project. As schools face mounting pressure to address student needs with evidence-based solutions, the project – funded by the William T. Grant Foundation and the National Institutes of Health – aims to understand the challenges principals and superintendents face in trying to find the most effective instructional and social skills programs.

Dr. Rufus Isaacs, a bee researcher, and professor in the Department of Entomology at Michigan State University, meets with the host, Kirk Heinze, on Greening of the Great Lakes to talk about the work he’s doing to bring bees back to the Midwest farms and gardens.
