A Global Model Expands International Reach

Michigan State University's international outreach initiatives are among the largest and most vital in the country, guiding undergraduate and graduate students in study abroad programs, and developing international opportunities for MSU faculty and researchers.

MSU actively works to make international resources and expertise available to off-campus audiences including educators, government agencies, the business community, and the general public.
