A call to arms for Mansfield

As I am certain you are aware, the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education has commissioned a comprehensive study “to ensure the 14 state-owned universities are prepared to meet the needs of students and employers in every region of the Commonwealth.”

That study is now underway. The National Center for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS) is the consulting firm selected to assist the Board of Governors with the Strategic System Review of the 14 universities and the Office of the Chancellor.

NCHEMS has launched a website that provides a forum in which each of us can tell the Mansfield University story.

Each of us–alumni, student, parent, employee and friend of MU, can share why Mansfield is or has been a difference maker in our lives, a difference maker in our community and region, and a difference maker in the Commonwealth and our Nation.

Each of us knows the power and the impact of a Mansfield education and the difference it has made in our lives and the lives of our loved ones and friends.

I urge you to provide your input and tell your Mansfield story.
