MSU President Waded Cruzado

“The One MSU is a big house with many doors to welcome our students and serve our communities.”

—President Cruzado, Inauguration Speech, Sept 2010

As stewards of student and taxpayer dollars, we are always conscious of our responsibility to wisely manage our resources. In these challenging economic times we are ever more vigilant, looking for both obvious and unobvious ways to increase our efficiency and keep our resources tightly aligned to our land-grant mission of excellence in teaching and learning, research and creativity, and service and outreach.

The MSU Integration Initiative is charged with improving the MSU experiences of our students and communities overall while integrating efforts in ways that more efficiently deliver on our mission. Students from across the institution are participating in this initiative, from providing feedback to serving on the Oversight Committee. I welcome the ideas and contributions of all of our community members, both internal and external, as we work together to serve our great state of Montana.
