Celebrating Team IPF

Dec. 21, 2018

It’s hard to believe 2018 is coming to a close. As I reflect on the year, I am incredibly proud of everything IPF has accomplished. Throughout the year, we spend so much of our time entrenched in work – managing projects, people and everything in between. We respond to emergencies, overcome challenges and never stop working to be better. As we put our final stamp on 2018, I want to pause for a moment and celebrate the many successes of this team. 

None of what we do is possible without each and every employee in IPF. We achieve success when we bring our various skills, talents and perspectives together. Every single IPF employee has a different story. Whether it’s the city where we’re born, our cultural beliefs, the education we’ve received, or even a favorite hobby, we are all unique in our own way. Yet each and every day, we come together, tackling challenges and working to build a better MSU. I value, deeply, our uniqueness as individuals, but even more our commitment to bringing that all together to accomplish great work.

I want to thank each and every one of you for your time and energy that you dedicate daily to our organization. I know that it’s not always easy. This year, each of us felt challenged at some point. However, through those challenges, like any family, we prevailed. We accomplished more than I could have imagined, and in many instances, we’ve become models for other units across campus. 

As we complete this chapter of our story, I hope you find time to reflect on your year, taking time to celebrate your successes. As you and your family celebrate this holiday season, I’m wishing you peace, joy and continued success in the coming year.

All the best,
