Honors College Impact

Honors College Impact is a week-long service learning program for incoming first-year Honors College students. Students are immediately immersed within the East Lansing/Lansing community from the start of their college experience, creating bonds and contributing right away to the place they will call home.

The first year of the program included 25 first-year students and five current Honors College students who served as mentors. Under the theme of inequity, students participated in service learning projects in the areas of health, education, housing, and food. Students began the program by engaging in a poverty simulation in which they had to operate on a fixed income and work together to pay for food, housing, utilities, and other necessities. Honors College students volunteered at Haven House, Volunteers of America, Tri-County Office on Aging, Allen Neighborhood Center, and Mt. Hope STEAM School.

Donations to this fund will defray the cost for additional students to participate.

Give to Honors College Impact and help incoming students address inequity in the East Lansing/Lansing community through service work with local community organizations.
