The Michigan State University Department of Police and Public Safety is now accepting applications for its new Spartan Envoy Student Ambassador Program. The program is a year-long paid internship opportunity focused on campus safety.

The inaugural program, beginning in fall 2024, will include a small group of students interested in improving campus safety, gaining leadership experience and interacting with DPPS at MSU. As a Spartan Envoy Ambassador, students will have the opportunity to represent student concerns while gaining a unique perspective on public safety in higher education. They will also be able to learn about how university safety operates. Through training, meetings with safety officials and projects within public safety, ambassadors will have a unique opportunity to be a part of MSU safety initiatives. Student ambassadors will engage in outreach, presentation and tabling activities across campus, ensuring accessibility for student voices.

Spartan Envoy requires a time commitment of 10 hours per week. In addition to weekly seminars, time will be focused on meetings with campus partners and working on assorted projects within the department.

Applications are now open through March 15, 2024. A selection committee will conduct interviews in March, with selections being announced early April. Students can apply for the program on Handshake.
