“I’m really excited for the opportunity to serve the Mizzou community,” Haberberger said. “MU is an amazing institution, and I’ve met many people who are very passionate about Mizzou; they love being here, and they love the institution. I’m looking forward to building on a great foundation and creating a workplace culture that strives for continuous improvement, high performance and excellence in service delivery.”
