MSU CARES, Volunteer Pilot Program

What is the Community Engagement Volunteer Pilot Program? 

The Community Engagement Volunteer Pilot Program, named MSU CARES, is a centralized repository, via a volunteer portal, of more than 100 approved community partners, and more than 16 causes and interests, to offer individual and team volunteer opportunities for employees. Our goals are to: 

  • Increase social responsibility, community engagement and service-learning activities 
  • Increase employee engagement and collaboration, and foster an inclusive work environment 
  • Increase exposure to differences and commonalities to build cultural competence
