Kevin Guskiewicz has been named the 22nd President of Michigan State University. The former Chancellor of the University of North Carolina has an impressive background at research institutions.

A neuroscientist, president-elect Guskiewicz has “an impressive portfolio of research related to traumatic brain injuries, specifically concussive injuries in young athletes,” Leigh Small, Dean and Professor, College of Nursing, Search Committee Member said in their welcome message.

As statements of praise and welcome flood in across the community, it’s time for The Only Colors community to put in their two cents.

The New President Introduces Himself

In a video posted to various social media platforms, President Guskiewicz took an opportunity to state his passion for his new role and the community.

I know the past few years have challenged Michigan State, yet I see a great university with a strong historical foundation that can reach new levels of excellence through its powerful commitment to student success, knowledge discovery, and land-grant service. I’m excited about the opportunity to work alongside all Spartans, with MSU students, faculty, staff, alumni, and trustees, and with its community partners and stakeholders to propel the university to even greater heights.

Considering the president-elect’s interest in getting to know the stakeholders and learn more about his new home, it’s time for us as a community to lend a hand.
