MSU is one of a small but growing number of universities that are beginning to offer a passport office in an effort to provide more services to a diverse community.

The new office also supports the university’s mission, according to Frank Stock, operations manager with MSU Facilities Services.

“This office will help support access to international programs,” Stock said. “It also supports the university’s diversity efforts and community engagement.” The office is intended to serve both the MSU community and the Gallatin Valley community, he added.
