Welcome Message

Welcome from the Vice President and Associate Provost for Student Affairs and Services

Welcome to Michigan State University (MSU) and to an exciting next phase of your life. Whether you are new, returning or transferring from another institution the 2020-21 year offers newness and a world of opportunity.

MSU takes great pride in its core values of quality, inclusiveness, and connectivity. As a place characterized by diversity of cultures and nationalities, I strongly encourage you to become an active part of campus life and take full advantage of the richness and the learning opportunities that this diversity provides.

Faculty through the classroom and the varied support staff outside of the classroom stand ready to assist you as you advance your knowledge and continue the process of transforming your lives.

Again, welcome to the Michigan State University. Let’s all work together to make MSU a community of learners that is inviting, comfortable, civil, and free of bias both in and outside of the classroom.
