Impact & Advocacy

Government Relations leads MSU's MI Spartan Impact and Spartan Advocate initiatives. In the immortal words of the late U.S. Speaker of the House Tip O'Neill, “All politics is local” a phrase, which encapsulates the principle that a politician's success is directly tied to his ability to understand and influence the issues of his constituents. And MSU’s success is directly tied to Michigan’s families and policymakers understanding the value of our programs in all 83 counties and, even more critically, the value of an MSU degree.
