Academic Reorganization Planning

View the Plan for Academic Reorganization (PDF).

The Plan for Academic Reorganization arises from the commitment of academic affairs at The University of Southern Mississippi to enhance the distinctiveness of academic programs and to create a sustainable model for academic programming. The Provost, Deans, chairs/directors and faculty advisory bodies at USM play an integral role in shaping our reorganization initiative and the concomitant success of academic programs.
