Citizen Scholars experiences, such as those in the stories below, lead to academic success, personal enrichment, and a commitment to changing our society and the larger world for the better. Our students leave MSU prepared to mobilize the knowledge, experiences, skills, and values of their arts and humanities education toward effective, transformative engagement. Citizen Scholars learn what it means to lead a meaningful life through responsible self-actualization, respectful relational interaction, and positive social contribution.
