MSU Narrows Down Qualifications For MSU President

The Midwestern State University Board of Regents is looking for the right man or woman to be the 11th president of the university.

On Tuesday, the regent chairman released the criteria for the next leader that was suggested by faculty, staff, students, and the community last week.  Those suggestions were made during a town hall style meeting.  Close to 200 people attended. 

Nine qualities will now be part of the focus in their search:

  1. A commitment to MSU's COLPLAC mission
  2. Experience in higher education
  3. A management style that includes valuing to close relationship of students with faculty and staff, and the “family” environment at MSU
  4. Respecting the role of each member of the MSU community
  5. A visible president, both internally and externally
  6. A strategic thinker who will support and implement the current strategic and facilities plans
  7. An understanding of and experience with legislative and community relations
  8. A strong record of financial stewardship, including raising funds and managing resources
  9. An individual who will stay in the position long enough to make a difference

Community members emphasized that MSU is vital to the economic and cultural development initiatives in the community.  They expressed a desire for a president who will be part of the Wichita Falls community; someone who will like living in Texas and Wichita Falls. 

The Search Advisory Committee considered all of the comments as well as the comments posted on the Presidential Search Website in developing a Leadership profile and advertisement for the position.  They took into account the comments above, and particularly the concern of the faculty that the next president should have the experience and values that will preserve MSU's academic quality and status as a COMPLAC university.

On Tuesday afternoon the Board of Regents approved the Leadership Profile and the advertisement for the position.  The ad will be posted on the Academic Search and MSU websites, as well as in various higher education publications and websites.  The preferred deadline for applications is January 7th, 2015.  The new president will take office in September 2015.
