Global Impact Initiative
In June 2014, the Michigan State University Board of Trustees created the Academic Competitiveness Fund (ACF) to provide resources for hiring tenure system faculty who will enhance the national and international excellence and competitiveness of MSU as a research university.
The Global Impact Initiative (GI2) continues to make excellent progress in bringing the best and brightest faculty to MSU. Over the last three years, the Office of the Provost and OVPRGS, have worked with individual colleges and departments to conduct searches focused on key areas of innovation, such as machine learning, precision medicine, computational genomics, autonomous vehicles, advanced materials, gene-editing, advanced plant science, and more. 80+ positions have been filled, with candidates hired from Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, MIT, Johns Hopkins University, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, Los Alamos National Lab, and many other top institutions. But we're not done yet and we look forward to the next year of recruiting.
