LBC Remembers Former Dean Michael Harrison

Dr. Michael J. Harrison

Lyman Briggs College is sad to announce the passing of former LBC Dean Dr. Michael J. Harrison.

Dr. Harrison joined the faculty of MSU in 1961. He spent his entire career here, finally retiring in 2007. In addition to his work in theoretical physics, he had several administrative assignments: he was the principal investigative officer for the Center of Excellence Grant, awarded to MSU in 1968, the largest grant received by the university up to that time, which strengthened the foundation for the Cyclotron; he was the university's first Faculty Grievance Officer; and he served as Dean of Lyman Briggs College from 1973 to 1981.

The LBC Community may view Dr. Harrison's obituary and offer condolences here.
