Our ability and willingness to come together and talk through issues will build a solid foundation for the University and the coastal community to become a much more economically progressive area.

As President of The University of Southern Mississippi, I am deeply troubled that USM’s commitment to meeting the needs of the Mississippi Gulf Coast has been called into question. I am aware of the historical tension surrounding access to higher education in the coastal community, and I respect each community member who has worked tirelessly to ensure that the coast is not marginalized or overlooked but is instead recognized as a critical region that deserves access to quality educational opportunities.
