It is my distinct privilege to serve as the next dean of

the College of Business and Economic Development

at The University of Southern Mississippi.

As an alumnus of Southern Miss, I know the business school has a long

and proud history of developing the business leaders of South Mississippi

and beyond, and it is an honor to be chosen to carry on its great tradition.

The commitment and spirit of our students, faculty and staff make this a

special place, and I am elated to be the new leader of such an important and

inspiring group of people.

As dean of the College of Business and Economic Development, I am proud

to look back with you on a successful 2018-19 academic year. I hope

you’ll take the time to look through this annual report containing the

impressive accomplishments of the past year, including impactful research

contributions, notable program rankings, critical real-world connections,

and the impressive successes and accolades of our students and faculty.

We have much to be proud of, and the future promises to be even greater!

I am incredibly grateful to serve as dean of such a dedicated community

of faculty and staff, who are so committed to building future business

leaders and positively impacting the lives of our students. I hope you enjoy

this annual report, and if you have any questions or feedback, feel free to
