Mittelstaedt Center Dedication

Mittelstaedt Center for Academic Advising and Business Student Success along with remarks from Mittelstaedt’s wife, Dean Collier, Provost Paul Benson, and a student occurred. You can watch a recording of the dedication and blessing in the following video

“The advising center and the scholarship in John’s name are perfect ways to honor the memory of a man who so positively influenced the School of Business Administration,” said Dean Trevor Collier. “As the plaque outside the advising center so accurately notes, John’s legacy will support the success of students both now and in the future.”

Mittelstaedt, dean from 2017 until his death in 2020, was passionate about the important role academic advisors play in helping students on their path to graduation and finding their vocational calling in life, and he added academic advisors to staff during his tenure. He also helped launch new master’s degree programs, elevated research, and teaching activities of the faculty, and created the Center for Student Engagement.
