As a part of Michigan State University, the nation's pioneer land-grant university, the School of Social Work takes very seriously the land-grant mission of teaching, research, and service. The School places a strong value on projects that provide education, services, and resources to people in Michigan and beyond. The School carries out this triple mission in a variety of ways, including through our Community Programs and Outreach Programs and Projects.
