The Middle States Team Is On Campus This Week

If you see people walking from building to building with a campus map and Middle States agenda in hand, be sure to say hello and offer help in locating his or her next meeting! During the first half of this week, ten visitors from other Middle States institutions are arriving on campus, set to hold conversations with dozens of MSU faculty, members of the administration, professional staff members and undergraduate and graduate students. The Team Members are:

It is arguable that Middle States reaccreditation is one of the most important activities in which the campus community becomes engaged. Without reaccreditation the University would simply not be able to operate. Thank you for your interest and support for a successful conclusion to the process, particularly the Team's visit.
