Mississippi State works on ways to improve the university

MISSISSIPPI STATE, Miss. (WCBI) – The faculty and staff at Mississippi State are working on ways to improve the University.

The future of Mississippi State University was the topic of discussion in a forum with faculty, staff, and MSU President Mark Keenum.

“Today was a dialogue with myself and our campus community. I like to have an opportunity to interact and share with our staff and students. To show them where we are headed and to also give them an opportunity to ask me questions,” said Keenum.

The dialogue would not be a one-time event. More of a jumping-off point for future discussions as plans are made and carried out.

“I plan to do more of these types of meetings but more on a smaller scale in specific departments on our campuses. It helps me and our administration to hear about what we are doing, how well we are doing, and how we can improve. It also gives me an opportunity to share we what have going on with our university,” said Keenum.

And even though the university is doing well, Keenum said there is always room for improvement and innovation.

“We have a new strategic plan that is transforming MSU. And part of that vision is to continue our trajectory and research what we are doing as a major. And to serve our students with high-quality programs for students. Also, to talk about enrollment growth with our students and what we can be doing to grow our enrollment,” said Keenum.
