FSU President Jonathan Gibralter encouraged constituents to become involved in the planning process. “I have been extremely pleased with the collegiality and openness that has existed on the Strategic Planning Team. The group has worked for over a year and half to develop a focused, strategic plan to move Frostburg State University into a strong and confident future. It is now time for faculty, staff, students, the local community and other stakeholders to react to the draft plan, and I hope everyone will take the time to honor the hard work of the Strategic Planning Team by becoming involved,” Gibralter said.
