Signature Activities

The Office for International Advancement hosts signature events throughout the year which are often attended by MSU leadership, faculty and staff, alumni and friends, and representatives from our dedicated partners.


Global MSU

Global MSU is an international event open to all MSU alumni, family, and friends. The event spotlights MSU’s global engagement and provides an opportunity for guests to network, renew friendships, and learn how to engage more deeply with MSU. MSU’s leadership and alumni are featured prominently to demonstrate our shared commitment to MSU’s world grant vision.

The multi-day gathering includes panel discussions highlighting MSU’s expertise in a global context, a classical music concert performed by College of Music alumni, and a networking reception and gala dinner celebrating our international alumni and donors.

The next Global MSU will be hosted by the MSU Alumni Club of Korea on May 29‒31, 2020 in Seoul, Korea. For more information, contact Michael Cylkowski.

MSU Global Day of Service

Spartans have a proud, longstanding tradition of service. MSU Service Day demonstrates the difference Spartans around the world can make in their communities. Through the collective efforts of thousands of volunteers, MSU Service Day brings Spartans together to serve others while demonstrating the power of MSU's global network.
