The University's acquisition of the unique Point Sur research vessel helps Southern Miss not only enhance the high-quality education and research opportunities we provide as the leading marine science institution in the state of Mississippi, but it will also provide valuable benefits to our community and associated marine economy.

Recently, I had the opportunity to experience a significant milestone in the growth and development of The University of Southern Mississippi’s research program as the research vessel Point Sur made its way across the Panama Canal. As I traveled to the country of Panama, entered the waters of both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, and explored the most recent addition to USM’s fleet, I was struck by the impact this vessel will have on our marine science research initiatives.

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.
