Student Organization Awards

Congratulations to our 2015 Recipients!

Student Organization of the Year - Sustained Dialogue

Sustained Dialogue provides opportunities for cross-cultural dialogue about the influence of race, ethnicity, gender, class, religion, sexual orientation, ability, and age on student experiences. They have been a club at MSU for four years and believe when we begin with relationship building and sharing of personal experiences, better informed and more impactful community change is possible.
