"Realizing the Vision" is the overarching planning document prepared by MSU Provost (and now MSU President-Designate) Lou Anna K. Simon in February 2004. A summary overview of the vision and the planning document can be found at:
The general Realizing the Vision webpage offers several options for additional 'drill-down',including Web material on focus groups, committees, etc.
It is important to understand that there are 5 committees working concurrently and in concert with one another on the various aspects of the vision statement.
The New Residential College Program Planning Committee (NRCPPC) is the committee specifically tasked to research and report on the prospects for a new residential program in 'liberal arts and sciences' at MSU.
