On February 9, 2017, MSU faculty and staff will receive an emailed link to a short University Services survey. The purpose of the survey is to gauge the MSU community’s use and satisfaction of our services. Though participation is voluntary, we hope you will take some time—10 minutes or so—to assess our strengths and identify areas for improvement. Thank you!
