Spartans have a proud tradition of service. From the thousands of students who give back each year through the Center for Service-Learning and Civic Engagement, the significant number of MSU graduates who enter the Peace Corps, to those volunteering daily in their local community, Spartans have risen to the challenge to "change the world." Join your fellow Spartans to make an impact through one of the opportunities listed below.
