The Council of Deans at Michigan State University includes the deans of eighteen colleges, the Associate Provosts for the Graduate School, the International Studies Program, and Undergraduate Education, and the Director of the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB).

As the academic leaders of Michigan State University, and as a group, we have committed that we will:

  • Foster and protect a culture that is transparent, open, trusting and safe;
  • Continuously cultivate leadership through caring and accountability; and
  • Empower everyone to be fully engaged in a community that is inclusive and equitable.

Our role, as deans, working with the Provost, is to partner with leaders throughout the university community now and into the future to effect positive change in MSU’s culture, organization and operation.
