1. Graduate Education

  • Work with the deans to focus on taking incremental steps that will result in expanding graduate education and increasing the impact it makes for MSU as the university continues its growth as Missouri State University. The goal is to turn around the decline in graduate student number and increase numbers graduating.
  • Successfully implement the three new programs starting fall 2012.
  • Initiate steps to add a program in occupational therapy and at least one other program that emerges from the ALC discussion.
  • Expand and better utilize pathways from UG programs into MSU graduate work.
  • Continue work to increase university connections that bring international students to MSU, including dual-degree programs.
