Michigan State University engages in exploratory and development chemistry in the historic St. Andrews Laboratory in Midland, Michigan. From this base, MSU also operates a STEAM education center, and provides valuable learning opportunities in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics to students, families, and teachers in the Great Lakes Bay area.
These activities support Michigan State University’s general mission of research, teaching, and service-outreach, and specifically advance MSU’s efforts to promote economic vitality in the region and the state.
Support for both the facility and educational programming is made possible through the support of several local organizations: the Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow Foundation, the Rollin M. Gerstacker Foundation, the Charles J. Strosacker Foundation, and the Dow Chemical Company Foundation.
