Since 1911, quality education has remained central to the mission of Middle Tennessee State University. Today, MTSU is home of the largest undergraduate program in Tennessee. As the university continues to grow and expand its operations to address the demands of the workforce, greater attention must be devoted to strengthening its relationship with the community. The University has realized a compelling need to focus on engaging the community with the overall mission of the institution to enhance scholarship and outreach opportunities.

As the Assistant to the President in the Office for Community Engagement and Support, it is a great pleasure to be able to extend a warm welcome to the members of our great community of middle Tennessee and beyond. We take seriously the charge to facilitate the innovative ways to foster relationships through community engagement.

As you know, MTSU is a valuable resource to the local, state-wide, regional, national, and international community; and our communities are a valuable resource to the University. As we extend ourselves beyond the campus, we have every confidence that we will be not only a part of a stronger University, but also a part of stronger communities.

We look forward to working with you, and cordially invite you and any of your colleagues to contact us or visit the office in the Cope Administration Building, Room 114.
