Impact and Advocacy
Monique C. Field-Foster
MSU’s Office of Governmental Affairs’ leads the MI Spartan Impact and Spartan Advocate initatives. In the immortal words of the late U.S. Speaker of the House Tip O'Neill, “All politics is local” a phrase, which encapsulates the principle that a politician's success is directly tied to his ability to understand and influence the issues of his constituents. And MSU’s success is directly tied to Michigan’s families and policymakers understaning the value of our programs in all 83 countiers and even more critically, the value of a degree from MSU.
