An Employee Resource Group is a free employee-led group (open to all MSU employee types including faculty, academic, support staff, and post-docs) that fosters inclusivity and builds community for those with common lived experiences by providing group discussion and learning opportunities, programming, and platforms for sharing resources. 

The International Employee Resource Group (International ERG) is a place for Spartans to connect, and discuss everyday issues, relationships with friends and family, and campus and community connections. The ERG engages in social activities that will help to build community. The International Employee Resource Group will meet every 3rd Thursday of the month (unless otherwise noted on the calendar due to university holidays or other conflicts).
