Since 1997, Michigan State University's Office of K-12 Outreach has had a commitment to outreach and service as part of MSU's land-grant mission. The Office of K-12 Outreach works to connect research with practice in schools and districts across Michigan, the U.S., and the world. K-12 Outreach provides information, expertise, and insight to policymakers at the local, state, and national levels. We work with K-12 educators, administrators, philanthropic organizations, and policymakers to increase personal, institutional, and system wide capacity focused on improving education for all students.
The work of the Office of K-12 Outreach is grounded in a student-centered, systemic model that emphasizes capacity building, collaboration and deep support. We view the schools and districts with whom we work as partners, and customize our programs and services to meet each partner's specific needs.
