Maroon Research celebration April 15

By DAVID SHAW | Vice President for Research and Economic Development

As many of you know, earlier this year the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching designated Mississippi State a very high research activity institution — the highest ranking a major research university can achieve.

Mississippi State reached this benchmark because of the hard work and commitment of our entire faculty, staff, students and administrators. All of you have helped create the level of research activity necessary to achieve the Carnegie classification.

We want to recognize and celebrate this achievement with you.

On April 15, the Office of Research and Economic Development will host Maroon Research: Tier One Impact, a showcase of the research diversity at Mississippi State, the contributions our research makes to the state, nation, and world, and the return on investment a top tier national research university delivers to its stakeholders.

I have invited each college, university level center and the library to exhibit their research success stories during our event, and we are looking forward to having everyone participate — this truly is a campuswide achievement.

The celebration takes place Friday, April 15 from 1-2:30 p.m. in the M-Club. President Keenum and Whit Hughes, deputy director of the Mississippi Development Authority and an MSU alumnus, will speak. Refreshments will be provided by ORED.

Please join us as we celebrate this important milestone in the life of our university. I look forward to seeing you there.
