The College of Science and Technology at Southern Miss is committed to having an impact on our local, state, and national community. Faculty at Southern Miss are experts in the classroom as well as the larger community.
One of our own, Max van Norden, program coordinator for the hydrographic science master’s program in the Southern Miss Department of Marine Science at Stennis Space Center, was featured as a call-in expert on NPR’s Science Friday program on Jan. 20 from 2:30-3 p.m.
Van Norden answered questions on electronic charting and surveying technology in the wake of the Costa Concordia cruise ship disaster off the coast of Italy.

We welcome our students back to the Spring 2012 semester with the wonderful news that our Business and Accounting programs have successfully maintained AACSB accreditation for another five-year cycle.
AACSB accreditation (from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) is the standard of excellence for business education and a commitment to continuous improvement. Fewer than 5% of business schools internationally carry AACSB accreditation. So start your new semester knowing that you are attending a college that has been endorsed by the top business accreditation body in the world.
As I prepare to deliver a presentation to the Mississippi Coast Foreign Trade Zone Wednesday evening, I have to pause and congratulate the School of Nursing on its $4 million gift for the new building announced today. What a great investment in nursing and Southern Miss by the Asbury Foundation! We in CoB look forward to the exciting process of building a new learning facility along with SoN.
