Our Mission

The MSU Work Life Balance Committee aims to act as liaisons and advocates for faculty, staff and administration looking to balance work and life issues by offering support, information, resources and affecting new policies. Several particular topics fall under the scope of this committee, which includes but are not limited to dependents, mental and physical health, and workplace policies and procedures.
