The Student Government Association recently drafted and sent a resolution to the Presidential Search Committee commending their selection of Clifton Smart III as the 11th president of the university on Oct. 16, 2012.
Smart had been interim president since June 27, 2011. During his term as interim president, Missouri State set an enrollment record on the Springfield campus for fall 2012, broke the record for private gifts in a single year and hired the first permanent vice president for diversity.
The Student Government Association has noted and greatly appreciated the countless hours the search committee devoted to interviewing and discussing applicants for the position, selecting two well-qualified finalists and then selecting Clif Smart as the next university president.
The Student Government Association is excited to continue working and collaborating with President Smart. To express this sentiment, a copy of the resolution was sent to Joe Turner, Chair of the Presidential Search Committee; Gordon Elliott, Chair of the Board of Governors; and Clif Smart, President of Missouri State University.
