Spartan Cultural Series

Feeling a sense of belonging is vital in life and in finding college success. At Michigan State University, we believe that the key to creating a better world is a diverse and inclusive community and the understanding that, while our differences can be challenging, they also make us stronger. Our Spartan community supports students who have a diverse range of backgrounds, viewpoints, identities and experiences, and we strive to empower each student to reach their full potential at MSU and beyond.

Throughout this online series, you’ll hear from community leaders, current students, faculty and staff who are committed to ensuring you have the support and resources you need to thrive as a Spartan.
