Hello!! My name is Dil and I am the executive director for Spartan Support Network! My position entails the functioning of the whole organization. I became a part of SSN in my sophomore year and I have loved it ever since then. SSN has become a big part of my life and I’m incredibly grateful and excited for this new opportunity!

Director of Operations

he/him | data science | senior

Hey! I'm the Director of Operations at SSN, that means I'm responsible for writing the  newsletters, maintaining this website, and making sure SSN runs smoothly. I joined this group when I was a freshman and was continuously drawn by the accepting atmosphere in my group and at the events. Throughout my time here, SSN has helped me find my place in the MSU community. In my freetime I like to drive my 90's car (Mazda Miata), make espresso drinks, and attempt to not burn food in my wok.

I'm the director of programming for SSN. I'm in charge of planning fundraisers, our monthly kickback Friday events, leader bonding events and anything else we decide to plan for the school year. I'm really excited to plan events centered around our students at MSU and creating a relaxing open-minded environment on campus. I'm a junior with a political science major and gender studies minor. In my free time I enjoy thrifting, writing, trying new boba shops and hanging out with my co-op housemates

Justin St. Charles

Advisor

he/him; they/them | LMSW

I am the Academic Advising Director for the Brody Neighborhood within the Neighborhood Student Success Collaborative (NSSC). I oversee the advising services of the Brody Neighborhood Engagement Center and work with partners across the University to support undergraduate students. The population I work with specifically is Michigan State University’s Exploratory Preference and exploring students.  I serve as the Assistant Dean designee for administrative functions for our Exploratory Preference students which includes readmissions, reinstatements, medical withdrawals, grief absences, late drops, and more.

​I believe that SSN is a benefit to students because there is a special bond that exists for those who are considered peers. Empathy is probably one of the most powerful tools to support one another and having shared identities (including being MSU students) helps others feel that they are not alone.
