“It is for us the living...to be dedicated here to the unfinished work.”

Michigan State University has made an exciting announcement: together we raised $1.5 billion in the Empower Extraordinary campaign!

This milestone was reached through the combined generosity of alumni and friends, and is already transforming students’ lives, increasing research capacity, and attracting the best and brightest to MSU.

But the work is not yet finished. 

While there is still time remaining, we will focus on four major remaining priorities and ensure individual department and college goals are met. The major priorities are: 

  • 100 New Endowed Chairs
  • Business College Pavilion
  • Grand Rapids Research Center
  • Music Building Expansion and Renovation
