Message from the Dean's Office

Dear CANR community, including our MSU Extension colleagues,

President Stanley’s most recent message includes changes to many Michigan State University functions. We understand this is likely to cause further concern for our community.

College leadership has been in touch with MSU leadership. We are monitoring these changes and evaluating the impacts to our teaching, research and Extension activities.

We understand that in some instances, this will further complicate how we accomplish our teaching, research and Extension work. In others, it will mean being increasingly diligent in implementing changes we have already made.

We will communicate additional information and provide guidance on some of the ways this will impact the specifics of our work late tomorrow.
