Southeast Michigan

Michigan State University has built and maintains effective, strategic partnerships with county, local governments, and entities in Southeast Michigan. Government Relations serves as the convener and a connector, working across the university to leverage MSU's talent, research, technology, facilities and services.

Our Southeast Michigan office serves as the university’s primary liaison relative to government issues and activities fostering intentional and reciprocal interactions in which both the university and the communities are equal partners, sharing in the rewards and challenges of the partnership.
