In Spartan Service to MSU: December 2014


Dec. 29, 2014

IPF strives to be the most high-performing, innovative, leading-edge facilities organization in the nation, with a focus on quality, customer satisfaction and value in all we do. The “In Spartan Service” feature highlights IPF’s commitment to the MSU community. 

IPF's Shawn Kelly receives 'Outstanding Supervisor' award
Shawn Kelly, Project Services manager, received MSU's "Outstanding Supervisor" award on Oct. 16. The university award was established by MSU's Family Resource Center to recognize MSU supervisors who are highly regarded by their employees for their support of the work/life (professional/personal) needs of their employees. 

The Spartan Experience facilitator series: Therese Nugent
The Spartan Experience is centered on creating and fostering a unified philosophy of service at MSU. IPF is pleased to be part of this exciting program aimed at enhancing the customer experience across the university. A group of IPF employees were selected to be facilitators for the program, and this regular feature allows the IPF facilitators to talk about TSE in their own words and say a little about themselves. Check out the video profile on IPF's Therese Nugent.

IPF updates MSU's River Trail
As part of the university’s ongoing efforts to improve non-motorized circulation, construction on the MSU River Trail (formerly known as the Red Cedar Greenway) from the Sparty statue intersection to Farm Lane has been completed. This was the third segment in a multi-segmented project. The third segment of the MSU River Trail project enhanced the pedestrian/bicyclist river trail that runs along the south side of the Red Cedar River from the Spartan Statue on Chestnut Road to Farm Lane. Take a look at this MSU-produced video highlighting some of the features of the trail renovations.
