Infrastructure Projects

  • Cook-Seevers Hall Renovation

    The Cook-Seevers Hall renovation provides a collaborative space for AFRE graduate students to work together.

  • Pavilion Project

    Expansion of the Pavilion to provide a second indoor arena will take the support of those who treasure the life experiences provided through events held there.

  • School of Packaging Building Renovation

    To attract the next generation of faculty, it is imperative that our academic spaces and laboratories reflect what we are – the top school in packaging.

  • Dairy Research and Teaching Facility

    MSU is a long-time leader in dairy cattle research, education and outreach, including the areas of nutrition, health, genetics and reproduction. A new dairy research and teaching facility will allow the university to continue and expand our efforts.

  • Plant Science Greenhouse Expansion and Renovation

    Michigan State University is a world-renowned leader in plant science research. The MSU campus includes roughly 90,000 square feet of greenhouse space, critical for the continued pursuit of answers to questions around food, health and the environment.

As you explore the campus building projects, you will read some history about our buildings. More though, you will begin to see our vision for the future.

We are at a point in time when our infrastructure needs can no longer be ignored. The College of Agriculture and Natural Resources spans 17 buildings across campus, and MSU Extension has staff in every county in the state, our connections are critical. That’s why we are embarking on strategic planning to improve these spaces.

These buildings represent our first steps in building a future that recognizes our students, faculty and staff all learn, teach and operate differently than they have in the past. Our spaces need to be flexible and free to be changed to accommodate meetings, classes, labs.

We cannot do this alone. We rely on a variety of ways to support these infrastructure projects – including generous funding from the State of Michigan, Michigan State University and donors, like you.

Thank you for your continued support and for helping us build the future!
