Members of the Board Search Committee leading the search for the next president of Mississippi Valley State University will hear from constituency groups in Campus Listening Sessions on Thursday, October 12, 2017. The discussions will center on the qualities and qualifications stakeholders believe the next institutional executive officer should possess.

The Campus Listening Sessions will begin at 3:00 p.m. and conclude at 5:55 p.m. on the campus located at 14000 Highway 82 W. in Itta Bena, Miss. While all sessions are open to the public, each session focuses on the needs of a specific constituency group.

"We are committed to finding the right person to lead Mississippi Valley State University, so it is very important that we hear from all members of the campus community," said Trustee Shane Hooper, Chair of the MVSU Board Search Committee. "I hope that all students, faculty, staff, alumni and members of the surrounding community will join us and let us know what type of leader they want to see in the next president."
