When you're a Spartan, you're part of something far bigger than campus' 5,200 acres. We're a global community more than 600,000 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 departments or programs who are actively involved in their communities. Additionally, thousands of students give back each year through campus' Center for Community Engaged Learning.
Spartans Serve is a year-round initiative designed to show the world the extraordinary impact Spartans make through service. This organized, collaborative effort brings Spartans together to serve others in their communities while demonstrating the reach and power of the Spartan network.
Every year in April, as part of the Spartans Serve initiative, there is a Global Day of Service to harness the power of this spirit of service and demonstrate what Spartans can do in a single day. This year's Global Day of Service will be held on April 17, 2021.
Since 2013, Spartans Serve has been a great success. More than 57,000 hours of service have been donated by more than 12,000 volunteers in nearly 1,000 locations. These volunteers have provided a collective impact valued at $1.375 million to their causes.
