The Valley family is composed of distinguished students, scholarly faculty members, professional staff, and caring administrators, all of whom are ready, willing, and able to provide you with the support and assistance you need to meet your personal and academic goals. As you embark upon your collegiate career, it will prove to be a very exciting journey and you can expect to grow and develop professionally, intellectually, and socially. 

As the Dean of University College, my goals are 1) to ensure that new incoming freshmen and transfer students are provided with the guidance and support needed to have a smooth transition into the Valley community; and 2) to develop programs that promote the holistic development of students and aid in their successful matriculation here at the Valley. Additionally, my staff and I take a student centered approach in the development and implementation of innovative programs and initiatives designed to assist all students in their persistence to graduation.

I strongly encourage you to become involved in the array of co-curricular programs and leadership opportunities available at MVSU. By doing so, you develop lifelong learning skills and experiences, enrich your physical, spiritual, social, emotional, and vocational growth, and last but certainly not least, you contribute to the overall quality of the MVSU community. 

If I can ever be of service to you, please do not hesitate to stop by my office located in the H. G. Carpenter Building.  


Best Wishes, 
Rita X. Myers
Dean of University College
