Message from the Dean


Congratulations Class of 2021!


On behalf of the College of Social & Behavioral Sciences, I extend a sincere congratulations and best of luck to you, a member of the college's Class of 2021. Through the challenges of the past year, you have persevered and completed your educational goals. We were honored to have you as a student, and now as a graduate and a part of our family of alumni.


We believe our students are uniquely prepared to go on in careers as leaders who advance positive social change and innovative solutions in their communities. With the foundation you’ve built during your time at Minnesota State University, Mankato, I have no doubt you will go on take your big ideas and turn them into real-world success.


And a reminder, that as you pursue your career and life goals, keep in touch with your professors, advisors and mentors. We take great pride in your achievements and urge you to reach out, even just to say hello.


Congratulations once again.




Dr. Matt Loayza

Dean, College of Social and Behavioral Sciences
