Health and Safety

It is no surprise health, wellness, and safety affect much of our daily lives. Our personal, work, and social interactions are all dependent on how we maintain our health. However, why is it that health and safety are so neglected? We are always trying to get more sleep, eat better, and work out more, but sometimes life gets in the way. With that being said, Michigan State is filled with diverse individuals. Different ethnicities, cultures, religions, and demographics make up the Spartan nation, and with that comes differing definitions of health and wellness. Below are some health and wellness resources that MSU offers.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program Website

MSU is launching a new website that will provide information and resources for undocumented students, refugees and recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The website reflects MSU's policy of non-discrimination and commitment to current and prospective students who, regardless of immigration status are, or aspire to be Spartans. MSU recognizes that students, staff and faculty with mixed-immigration status often face barriers and challenges as they navigate campus policies requiring support services to address their unique needs. Our goal is to reduce apprehension, confusion, and make more transparent our resources for those who live, learn and work at Michigan State or desire admission to MSU. Michigan State University affirms our commitment to admit and support students from all backgrounds, consistent with our values and policies that include nondiscrimination.
