Lou Anna K. Simon, the 20th president of Michigan State University, leads the university's work to advance the common good in Michigan and around the world. She began her career at Michigan State after earning her doctorate here in 1974, starting as an assistant professor in the Office of Institutional Research and promoted to associate professor in 1979. She was named professor of educational administration in 1984. Simon has held a variety of administrative roles at MSU, including assistant provost for general academic administration, associate provost, and provost and vice president for academic affairs. The MSU Board of Trustees appointed her president in January 2005.

As president, Simon has engaged Michigan State in a strategic and transformative journey to adapt the principles of the land-grant tradition to 21st-century challenges.
