Michigan State University is moving forward with a search for its next president. This website will be updated frequently to keep the MSU community and the public informed throughout the process.

A committee will be selected to assist in the presidential search, which will be guided by transparency and feedback from faculty, staff, students and alumni. Input from a series of public listening sessions and online comment forms will help committee members shape the criteria for the experience and characteristics sought in MSU’s next leader.
