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, and helping our graduate students participate at important conferences in the field of War & Society. Please consider supporting the Center in our current and future endeavors.

Funds are deposited with the USM Foundation, a separate non-profit organization that exists to support Southern Miss. The Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation which serves as a fiduciary of all private funds donated to Southern Miss. Fees and contributions are tax deductible.  If you have any questions about supporting the Dale Center, please contact Dale Center Co-director Kyle Zelner at or 601-266-6196.
