After nine years as University of Mississippi provost and executive vice chancellor, Morris H. Stocks is returning to the faculty at the Patterson School of Accountancy.
The university said Monday that Stocks’ move takes effect Jan. 1.
Chancellor Jeffrey S. Vitter says Stocks’ administrative legacy is substantial and the fruits of his work will be visible for years to come. Under Stocks’ leadership, overall student enrollment has grown by over 40 percent and minority student enrollment is up by over 60 percent. Student success measures have also improved with freshman retention and six-year graduation rates each increasing by roughly 7 percent.
Senior Associate Provost Noel Wilkin will serve as interim provost and executive vice chancellor pending a national search for Stocks’ replacement.
