MSCHE Update: New Co-chair of MSCHE Self-Study Steering Committee

The MSCHE Self-Study Steering Committee and I wish to thank Kimberly Kline for her service to Buffalo State as co-chair of the Self-Study Steering Committee. Dr. Kline’s work was instrumental in the initial design of the self-study process. Please join me in wishing her well as she focuses her attention on other initiatives for the Buffalo State community.

I am pleased to announce that Abdi Hajikandi will serve as the new co-chair of our MSCHE Self-Study Steering Committee. Mr. Hajikandi is currently the assistant director for academic services in the Arthur O. Eve Educational Opportunity Program, overseeing academic programs within the unit. For 32 years, Mr. Hajikandi has been an engaged member of the campus community. He serves as the chair of the Professional Staff Caucus and is a member of the President's Civic Action Plan Implementation Committee, chairing its Subcommittee on Staff Recognition for Community Engagement workgroup.  Please join me in welcoming Mr. Hajikandi as he takes on the important role of Self-Study Steering Committee co-chair.

Along with Kelly Frothingham, associate dean of the School of Arts and Sciences, and Kim Barron, assistant vice president for institutional effectiveness and planning, Mr. Hajikandi will lead the MSCHE self-study development process through the summer.
