At Michigan State University, we believe our differences are assets. We foster a community that respects and values a broad range of backgrounds, viewpoints, and experiences and encourages and creates opportunities so all Spartans can reach their full potential educationally and professionally.
The nation's pioneer land-grant university, MSU was founded as a bold experiment that democratized higher education, making a quality education accessible. Today, advancing an inclusive campus remains a core value.
