The Hub for Innovation in Learning and Technology leverages MSU’s energy and inventiveness by connecting people, designing opportunities, and facilitating innovation. Continuing changes in higher education will open opportunities for new ways to think, learn, create, and grow.

Now is the time to ensure MSU’s continued ability to educate Spartans capable of life-changing work that addresses the world’s toughest challenges. We welcome you to innovate with us, and to join the conversation about the future of education.


The Hub will help advance Michigan State University by realizing a more active, engaged, successful, and valuable student experience.



The Hub facilitates the passion and inventiveness of students, faculty, staff, and stakeholders both inside and outside of MSU to create, identify, and accelerate new ways to collaborate, learn, research, and deliver instruction.

Core to MSU’s values are commitments to excellence, inclusivity, and connectivity. We understand that the more diverse our community, the stronger we are. Every Spartan should be able to draw strength from this community, see their place in it, and call this place home. The Hub takes seriously its responsibility and will fulfill our shared commitment to be excellent, inclusive, and connected.


HUB Innovations

Michigan State University is a place for remarkable innovation in learning and technology. These projects exemplify the types of work that the Hub will help to connect, amplify, and expand.

What We Do

We recognize that innovations in learning and the use of learning technologies will come from faculty, students, and staff working together inside and across experiences, programs, and departments. Our job is to help them—to help identify, accelerate, and sometimes create new ways to learn, research, deliver instruction, and collaborate.

The Hub is a space for innovation. We offer new ways to work, new physical spaces for collaboration, and a group of people who can help the campus design new ways to learn, develop assessments and research the use of learning analytics, and explore uses of digital technologies that will impact any learning environment. 

We are designed to leverage, coordinate, and scale MSU’s existing energies and creativity by connecting people, designing opportunities, and facilitating innovation.

Please come work with us.
