Global Day of Service

Make an Impact on the MSU Global Day of Service

Spartans volunteering

Who will make an impact all over the world?

The SPARTANS WILL. POWER Global Day of Service set for April 8, 2017, is our way of showing the world the extraordinary impact Spartans can make in a single day. This organized, collaborative effort brings Spartans together to serve others in their communities while demonstrating the reach and power of the Spartan network.

Service-minded Spartans from around the globe — individual alumni, alumni communities, groups, Spartan-led companies, businesses, non-profits, and student organizations — are currently registering service projects. Spartans can also volunteer now for one of these established projects or create their own.

The deadline for registering projects is March 24, and volunteer registration closes on April 2.
