USM nursing school wants college status reinstated by Board
Published: January 23,2012
HATTIESBURG — The University of Southern Mississippi has asked the state College Board for college status to be returned to the School of Nursing for the first time since 2003.
USM President Martha Saunders tells the Hattiesburg American she hopes the College Board will vote on the request in April.
The school announced last week that the Asbury Foundation has given $4 million to the nursing school building fund.
The School of Nursing has lost its college status twice since it was founded in 1967. The most recent roll back came in 2003, when USM president Shelby Thames reduced the number of colleges from nine to five.
