Student Service Projects

Community service is an integral component of a student's MSU experience, preparing them for lifelong civic and social responsibility. Throughout the year, the MSU Alumni Office collaborates with university partners and community sponsors to offer several service opportunities in communities across the state. Projects are open to all currently enrolled MSU students including graduate, professional and medical school students.

For the 2020-2021 academic year we will also offer virtual community engaged learning opportunities in partnership with the Center for Community Engaged Learning.

Volunteer for a Project

All student projects on this site are designated with a "Student Project" badge and are only available to students. Registration for these projects is conducted in partnership with the Center for Community Engaged Learning.

Volunteer for a Project as a Group, Organization, RSO or Program

Student groups, organizations, RSO's, programs, etc. are welcome. If your group would like to serve together at a designated project, we'll work with you to make arrangements. Please contact Dan DiMaggio, Student Engagement Director, MSU Alumni Office by email or by calling 517-355-6472.

Be a Student Site Leader for a Project

If you're a student that possesses leadership skills, is enthusiastic about service and giving back to the community, enjoys working with a diverse group and has great organizational skills, then consider serving as a site leader for a service project. As a site leader, you'll be the contact for your group at the service location. When the project is complete, you'll facilitate a short reflection with your team.
