In 2016, Michigan State University introduced the MSU Distinguished Partnership Awards, a series of four new University-wide recognitions for highly engaged and scholarly community-based work that positively impacts both the community and scholarship.
 
The awards are given in the following categories: 
  • MSU Distinguished Partnership Award for Community-Engaged Research 
  • MSU Distinguished Partnership Award for Community-Engaged Creative Activities 
  • MSU Distinguished Partnership Award for Community-Engaged Teaching 
  • MSU Distinguished Partnership Award for Community-Engaged Service 
Each of these awards is jointly conferred on a faculty recipient and her/his community partner(s), and comes with a shared stipend of $1,500. The four award recipients are also finalists for the Community Engagement Scholarship Award.
 
The inaugural recipients will be recognized at the University Outreach and Engagement Awards Ceremony on February 21, 2017, at the Kellogg Center. See Awards Ceremony details and registration information.

Nominations

The MSU Distinguished Partnership Awards recipients are selected through the Community Engagement Scholarship Award nomination and selection process.
