MSU students have added opportunities within the My Spartan Story platform to support their beyond-the-classroom learning and engagement. The Center for Community Engaged Learning and the Undergraduate Research office both hold modules within My Spartan Story that Spartans can utilize beginning Spring 2021. Students can find volunteer opportunities and can track their undergraduate research and creative activities. Engagement in these experiences can be validated to display on your Spartan Experience Record.
Center for Community Engaged Learning
The Community Engaged Learning Module is the platform that the MSU Center for Community Engaged Learning uses which serves as the MSU Student Volunteer Center. In this module you can find volunteer opportunities, track your hours, provide community partner evaluations, and reflect on your learning experience. The module will launch Fall 2022.
