The Network for Global Civic Engagement is a university-wide teaching and research collaboration that provides resources and activities to participating MSU colleges and major administrative units with a particular interest in global civic engagement in the United States and abroad. The Network’s focus on global civic engagement provides a practical perspective integrating space, ways of knowing, and goals across diasporic, indigenous, migrant, and settler communities. In other words, global is not the geographic opposite of local, and nor is it synonymous with an international level of engagement. The mission for this endeavor is to develop sustained relationships through reciprocity, collaboration, and investment, as well as address community engagement issues and implications in a global context.
Through the generosity of Michigan State University Federal Credit Union (MSUFCU) and participating MSU colleges and major administrative units, the Network will award:
Up to three one-year $5,000-8,000 Global Civic Engagement Project Grants to support faculty community-based research and practice in global civic engagement in the context of a sustained community partnership; for further information, see the Call for Proposals.
Up to three one-year $3,000 Civic Engagement Student Fellowships to support undergraduates’ in-depth study and practice in global civic engagement in the context of a sustained partnership or coordinated faculty project; for further information, see the Fellowship Aapplication.
