It is with great pride and enthusiasm that I extend greetings to you. I am honored to have been recently named president of Midwestern State University, where I spent my formative colleges years and earned my bachelor's and master's degrees. Little did I know when I was growing up on my grandfather's farm that I would have the opportunity to lead a university someday. And that speaks to the transformative power of higher education that I experienced at MSU Texas.

At Midwestern State, we believe that education is not just about acquiring knowledge; it is about embracing the journey of self-discovery and personal growth and building a solid foundation for a successful future. As you explore the possibilities here, you will find we are committed to fostering an environment that nurtures intellectual curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking. Additionally, you will find faculty who are passionate about their fields of expertise and staff who are dedicated to serving and supporting our students through their educational journey.

We work together to provide an exceptional education beyond textbooks, empowering you to apply your knowledge to real-world challenges and positively impact society. MSU Texas offers a wide array of academic programs that cater to various interests and career aspirations. From the arts to sciences, business to health care, and engineering to humanities — we have a diverse range of disciplines for you to consider.

I am proud of our university and its core values: People-Centered, Community, Integrity, Visionary, and Connections. Our goal is that you will see each of us living these values each day, both on and off campus. I invite you to explore our campus, meet our students, faculty, and staff, and see for yourself what sets MSU Texas apart.

With Mustangs Pride,

Stacia Haynie, Ph.D.
