Water Moves MSU: Thematic Year

WATER MOVES Michigan State University is taking the lead in science, technology, art, and innovation to shape a better tomorrow in the Great Lakes and beyond. During 2017, Spartans are educating to empower community action, inspire creativity, and instill a sense of urgency to respect and appreciate the most prevalent and precious resource on our planet.

This 2017 MSU thematic year initiative aims to create dynamic programming through events, encourage discussion and debate, and build new bridges at the intersection of topics such as health, policy, culture, artistic expression, and community. The initiative is coordinated by the MSU Cultural Engagement Council.
