Mid-State’s academic programs in six schools • School of Business & Technology • School of General Education & Learning Resources • School of Health • School of Protective & Human Services • School of Advanced Manufacturing & Engineering • School of Transportation, Agriculture, Natural Resources, & Construction Learning commons model In addition to the academic reorganization, the Library will transition to a learning commons model that provides holistic academic support services to students. This will include transforming the physical spaces at the Wisconsin Rapids and Marshfield campuses to support collocated instructional resources such as materials, academic coaching, and tutoring as well as adult basic education services. The spaces will also provide a place for students to study, including huddle rooms for collaborative study and projects. Staffing changes Each school and academic support unit is led by a dean. Based on the number of programs and accreditation requirements, an associate dean

continues to provide support in three of the six schools. The realignment has also created new positions focused on areas to improve Student Success and Organizational Effectiveness. Looking Forward All the work and energy we’re investing now will pay dividends when we are able to better serve our students and workforce partners. The EMP, combined with an aligned workforce within academics, will deepen our commitment to providing district residents with the opportunities they need to pursue their educational goals, improve their quality of living, and meet the needs of employers in our district. We all look forward to seeing the uptick in our Key Results of Student Success and Organizational Effectiveness— and feeling better than ever about how we deliver on our mission to transform lives.
