Personal Responsibility


We recognize the challenges the global pandemic has placed on each one of us, and especially the disappointment that we cannot be together on Michigan State University’s campus at this time. We want you to understand, however, Physically Distanced does not mean isolated or disconnected from others. We can be Socially Engaged even if we can’t be together in person. 

Community isn’t found only on our campus or other MSU properties – it’s in our hearts, in the way we support each other and our commitment to make a positive impact on the world. Being remote is different, but different allows us to find opportunities to join together and live out what it means to be a Spartan. 

We appreciate this isn’t the way we envisioned life or our time at MSU. We look forward to the time we can all come together as we have in the past – in classrooms, having lunch in campus dining halls, playing IM sports, joining student organization activities in person, cheering on our teams and gathering with friends.

Until then, we will continue to come together as a community from our individual “here,” staying Physically Distanced and Socially Engaged. Together we will meet the challenge.
