Get Engaged,
Influence the Outcomes

Participation in the academic strategic planning implementation process will greatly shape and influence the work and learning outcomes of our faculty, staff, and students. To that end, we are interested in the personal interests of our broader community. From the individual to the college level, we want to enable people to realize their own goals within the larger academic strategic plan framework. 

The Office of the Provost has solicited input and facilitated collaboration across the entirety of the office’s purview, which includes all colleges and units reporting to an assistant or associate provost and the faculty, academic staff, and support staff within. There has been no requirement to participate in these efforts or attend our summits. We hope that through this transparent process, we gain further momentum across the Office of the Provost in how we move MSU into the future.

We look forward to continuing this engaging and transparent process cycle again in 2024 to incorporate exceptional ideas to shape the vision of MSU.
