SOUTHERN MISS TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT
UNDERGOES NAME CHANGE

HATTIESBURG -- The University of Southern Mississippi's Transportation Department has been approved for a name change.

As of Monday, April 5, the name of the department has been changed to the Department of Parking Management.

"The former name transportation implied that we either transported or provided vehicles for transportation," said Lucy Bowens, interim director for the department. "Due to our true purpose and duties, this new name better serves us."

For more information, contact the department at (601) 266-5447.
