Missouri State fills associate vice president position
Missouri State University recently hired Matt Morris as associate vice president for administrative and information services. He began his duties June 1.
“I am delighted to have Matt Morris back on the Springfield campus and as a key member of the administrative and information services staff,” said Ken McClure, vice president for administrative and information services. “The wealth of experience and knowledge which he brings will serve Missouri State well for many years.”
Morris has served as the interim vice president since February 2012. He supervises selected areas of administrative and information services. He will also have responsibility for all of the administrative and information services budgets, the university’s capital appropriations and expenditures, and liaison responsibilities for the neighborhood associations with whom the university has contact.
Morris had worked for the Missouri State system for more than 13 years. He worked as director of business and support services at Missouri State-West Plains from 2006-2012 and in several positions in residence life and services on the Springfield campus from 1999-2006.
“I am excited for the opportunity to work with Vice President Ken McClure and the entire administrative and information services team,” said Morris. “Administrative and information services is an area of the university focused on service. I look forward to serving students, faculty, staff and the community in a positive manner that advances our institution.”
Morris holds a Master of Business Administration from Missouri State and a Bachelor of Business Administration from Pittsburg State University.
The associate vice president position is not new, but has been vacant since the fall of 2008, when McClure was promoted to vice president. It was possible to fill the post at this time by reallocating existing funds and positions, according to McClure.About Missouri State University
