Statement on the selection of an interim president

Oct. 17, 2022

The MSU Board of Trustees is unified in its commitment to having an orderly and smooth transition in university leadership and in its commitment to academic freedom, and to working with university leadership toward the goals outlined in the MSU Strategic Plan 2030.

The Board will immediately seek to identify an interim president to ensure steady leadership at the university. This includes outreach to students, faculty, staff and alumni. It is our intent to engage in thoughtful deliberation and to make a decision as soon as possible.

The Board’s expectation is President Stanley will remain in his position for the next 90-days and would help the Board make sure steady leadership is in place while a presidential search gets underway. More information will be shared when available.
