Distinction in Public Affairs program is a new program in its fourth year and starts in late September. This program targets sophomores and juniors at MSU who want to enhance their co-curricular experiences to the public affairs mission.
Participants will be placed into small teams of 8-10 students led by one faculty and one staff member to meet periodically throughout the semester to learn and engage together in the three pillars of the public affairs mission. The spring semester included a hands-on project to implement, sharing what the participants have learned at the Public Affairs Conference. The participants who complete the Distinction also received a recognition at the STAR Awards program.
Applications are due Monday, September 23rd and we will take the first 75 applicants. We strongly encourage you to apply as soon as possible to ensure a spot in the program.
