Arts @ MSU
Arts MSU is a strategy that moves creativity to the center of university life by integrating the arts into our educational experiences, our research activities, our outreach, and our campus culture.
Global Impact Initiative
To support growth and accelerate the pace of discovery, Michigan State launched the Global Impact Initiative (GI2) in 2014 with the goal of recruiting 100 new faculty in some of the most exciting areas of research.
The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) will be a scientific user facility for the Office of Nuclear Physics in the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science. Supporting the mission of the Office of Nuclear Physics, FRIB will enable scientists to make discoveries about the properties of rare isotopes, nuclear astrophysics, fundamental interactions, and applications for society, including in medicine, homeland security, and industry.
The Institute for Quantitative Health Science and Engineering (IQ) works to create and advance tools for quantitative analyses and interrogation of complex biological systems, and uses these tools for a greater understanding of life and living systems to enable improved control of health and disease.
High Performance Computing
The Institute for Cyber-Enabled Research (ICER) provides a solid cyberinfrastructure that connects researchers from academia and industry with advanced computational systems and tools.
MSU, Henry Ford Health System Partnership
Henry Ford Health System and Michigan State University are partnering to make Michigan a national leader in providing access to exceptional health care for all residents, scientific discovery and education for providers, patients and families.
Climate Change Research & Outreach
Sustainable agriculture, low-carbon building materials, solar energy and more. MSU's research and outreach efforts around climate change are growing as we work toward a greener future.
National and international faculty awards are an important component of institutional reputation, and are counted as AAU institutional indicators of excellence.
Plant Science Excellence IV
The Plant Science Excellence Committee has been reengaged to begin work on a 10-year plan for the university.
