Dear Midwestern State University family,

I hope each of you are doing well and having a great spring semester.


On behalf of our MSU Texas Presidential Search Committee, I want to thank those of you who took the time to complete our confidential survey. We had a great response with hundreds of submissions that provided our committee with extremely valuable feedback and insights from the people who matter most in this search – our MSU Texas community. Our committee, with the help of a search firm, will use this information to recruit highly qualified candidates for the application process. That recruitment process began today with the posting of the position and will run through early May.


We are dedicated and determined to identify the best candidate to serve as the next president for MSU Texas and to lead this storied university family to a bright future. You can find information about the search process at our MSU Texas Presidential Search website. We encourage you to share this link with anyone who may be interested in applying or just wants to learn more about the process.


In addition, I want to congratulate a member of our MSU Texas community serving on our search committee – Dr. Shelley Sweatt, who earlier this week was appointed to the Texas Tech University System Board of Regents. Dr. Sweatt is a strong advocate for MSU Texas and is no stranger to the Wichita Falls community or to higher education, and we are thrilled to welcome her to our Board of Regents leadership team. Her insight, experience and MSU Texas connection will be a valuable addition to the board and system.


We look forward to receiving nominations and applications from dynamic leaders with the characteristics and experience that match the ambitions and needs of this university.


I will continue to provide you with further information as our search progresses, and as always, please reach out to us with any questions, comments or nominations through the MSU Texas Presidential Search email: ttus.msutexas.pressearch@ttu.edu.
