Dear Broad Spartan community and friends:

This is to inform you that Interim President John Engler resigned from the presidency of MSU yesterday. Please see the attached link for his resignation letter to the MSU Board of Trustees:

This morning the Board of Trustees announced his replacement, the announcement is attached:

We look forward to working with Interim President Satish Udpa while the search for the permanent president continues in full force. Last week, together with my other MSU Dean colleagues, I organized a meeting with Trustees Diane Byrum and Melanie Foster, the Co-Chairs of the Presidential Search Committee. They informed us of the strong interest in the position and a robust pool of potential candidates that they and the search firm are considering.

Please know that at the Broad College, as at all of MSU, we remain committed to doing the work to provide each student an exemplary experience and remain resolute to our goal of being a top of mind business school. My colleagues and I are passionate in ensuring that we prepare every Broad Spartan to grow professionally and personally to realize their fullest potential and meaningfully contribute to their organizations and the society.

Thank you for your continued support and please do not hesitate to reach out to me with your questions or concerns.
