Coffee with the Profs

One of the MSU Alumni Office's long-standing featured offerings, the Coffee with the Profs series highlights research and work done by some of MSU’s finest faculty and staff. This lifelong education program is open to all.

The spring 2022 series has concluded and all presentations are located in our livestream archive

Save-the-date for our fall 2022 series. As we look ahead to fall, we hope to offer a hybrid program - it we’re able to safely assemble, we'll be in-person on campus and for those of you who are not able to make it back to campus, we’ll still continue to offer a virtual option.

Tentative schedule for fall 2022:

  • Oct. 24 - Kirsten Fermaglich, history of name changing in the United States in the 20th century
  • Oct. 31 - Kim Dodd, history and role/purpose of the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory
  • Nov. 7 - Shanelle Foster, using 3-D printing technology to create electric motor designs
  • Nov. 14 - Jon Frey, Spartans at Isthmia project and digital archaeology

If you have questions about the Coffee with the Profs program or would like to be added to the email list, please contact Elizabeth Wheeler via email or by calling (517) 884-2106.
