Dale Center for the Study of War and Society
Support the Dale Center for the Study of War & Society
The Dale Center for the Study of War & Society at Southern Miss is dedicated to teaching and promoting War and Society and military history, both in and out of the classroom. Past contributions have assisted us in continuing the Richard McCarthy Lecture Series, funding the Jack Lucas Award for undergraduate excellence in a War & Society essay, funding the 103rd Infantry Division digital humanities project, and helping our graduate students participate in important conferences in the field of military history. Please consider supporting the Center in our current and future endeavors.
Funds are deposited with the USM Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, which serves as a fiduciary of all private funds donated to Southern Miss. Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent of current IRS regulations. If you have any questions about supporting the Dale Center or are interested in supporting the Center with a planned gift, please contact Dale Center Co-director Dr. Kyle Zelner at kyle.zelnerFREEMississippi or 601-266-5563.
