As we prepare to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday, January 15, 2018. We must not forget the work that remains in elevating our underserved communities and aspiring for true equality and opportunity for all. 

On January 16, 2018, registration will go live for the MSUBA (MSU Black Alumni) service initiative. This initiative directly addresses the communities of Detroit, Flint, Grand Rapids, and Lansing, and will bring together both alumni and students through four separate service projects on February 17, 2018. In hosting these service projects, MSUBA hopes to provide an enriching experience for all alumni and students involved. 

Each project will have approximately 70-80 participants and will be supported primarily by students. The students participating in each of the four service projects will be recruited through on-campus partnerships with the Center for Service Learning and Civic Engagement (CSLE), Residential and Hospitality Services (RHS), the Associated Students of Michigan State University (ASMSU), and the Office of Academic and Cultural Transitions (OCAT).

Please continue to watch this space, and follow along with us, as we enact change in real-time on February 17, 2018
