This is an exciting time for the social, behavioral, and economics sciences at Michigan State University!
You only need to look at the recent gift from Governor James Blanchard and his wife, Janet, that established the Governor Jim Blanchard Public Service Forum to see the opportunities private contributions can make, such as bringing President Bill Clinton to campus as the first speaker in the series.
The wonderfully diverse College of Social Science, full of energy and talent, is dedicated to human problems in this increasingly complex world. Social, behavioral, and economic scientists from the College of Social Science regularly cross disciplinary boundaries to partner with teams of engineers, physicians, and other scientists. We cross geographical boundaries as well—Washington, D.C.; Hangzhou, China; Flint, Michigan; Kenya; and New Orleans—and wherever we go, we ask hard questions that address issues that affect more than seven billion people.

The College of Social Science seeks to raise $60 million in the Empower Extraordinary campaign. We will achieve this goal with a mix of endowment and annual funds.
