Dear faculty and staff,
Thank you for your diligence, ingenuity, and tireless efforts as we united together to support our students and communities amid this global health crisis. I am deeply grateful for the countless ways you have risen to this challenge with service above and beyond expectations.
The Minnesota State spirit of collaboration, innovation, and resiliency has been on full display. Your work and caring speaks volumes about who we are and what we can accomplish.
I want to share with you a video message we sent to all our students today. College and university presidents, the Board of Trustees, and I joined together to pay tribute to our Minnesota State students for their perseverance and hard work during these extraordinary times, as well as to extend our accolades and congratulations to the Class of 2020. Like you, we are proud of what they achieved. You can watch the video here: https://www.minnstate.edu/Grads2020/index.html
Thank you, again, for your support of our students and your commitment to their education.
Stay safe and well.
