Vision and Strategy for MSU

President Stanley

In recent months, President Samuel L. Stanley Jr., M.D., invited alumni, donors and friends to a series of conversations with four of the top MSU administrators who are playing key roles in shaping MSU’s future. Each of the conversations was recorded and can be viewed online.

Norman Beauchamp Jr., executive vice president for Health Sciences, explained MSU’s vision for Health Sciences to tap the unique strengths from three human health colleges and MSU’s health clinics to advance research, improve clinical practice and create educational opportunities for students.

Jabbar R. Bennett, vice president and chief diversity officer, kicked off the series with a conversation focused on diversity, equity and inclusion and MSU’s comprehensive strategy to create a framework for becoming a national leader in this area.

Melissa Woo, executive vice president for administration, chief information officer and president of the MSU Foundation, explored the changing nature of how people live, work and learn as a new normal takes shape at MSU post-pandemic.

Teresa K. Woodruff, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs, discussed the development of innovative and effective teaching approaches to increase access and success for all learners. She also talked about her efforts to foster diverse, equitable and inclusive work and learning environments for students, faculty and academic staff.
