The national coronavirus crisis is greatly impacting MSU students. As the University has moved all classes online, some students have gone home to continue remote learning, or to practice social distancing. However, for some, MSU’s campus is their home.
Our FAME students are former foster youth, homeless, or are otherwise independent. This public health crisis has eliminated jobs these students depend on to meet their basic needs.
To support our FAME students during this time, we ask that you make a gift to The College of Social Science Emergency Fund which has been set up to help students in times of crisis. Funds designated for students in this fund will support those students in the FAME program (or who fall into the FAME category) during disruptions that have resulted from the spread of COVID-19.
We are compiling documents and links that may be helpful to students, alumni, and the community in general at socialwork.msu.edu/COVID-19-Helpful-Documents. We will continue to update this page as more resources become available. For the latest information regarding MSU, please visit msu.edu/coronavirus/.
The BASW Program prepares students for introductory-level practice through innovative courses and personal attention.
The MSW Program prepares students for advanced practice in Clinical Social Work and Organization and Community Leadership.
The PhD Program prepares students for leadership positions in research, education, policy making and administration.
