A Message from the Vice Chancellor

“From little seeds grow mighty trees.”

Season after season fiercely loyal alumni and friends have loved and nurtured the University of Mississippi, witnessing it grow into a nationally recognized flagship university. From those first 80 students who enrolled in 1848 to today’s student body of 23,258 strong, deeply committed caretakers poured their time and resources into strengthening Ole Miss.

Today is no different. The Ole Miss family is known for the tremendous commitment and generosity focused on enhancing educational opportunities for our students, top-tier health care for our citizens, and stellar experiences and facilities for our student-athletes.

Innovative, cornerstone programs are drawing students from across the nation and around the globe to our campuses. To reach their full potential, these students and the programs they choose require a constant infusion of resources. If you are engaged with Ole Miss as a donor, we thank you. If you are interested in learning more about matching your passions with this university, please contact a member of our Development team.

Philanthropic giving is rewarding. You will know that by giving here you have invested in students – future leaders, citizens, artists, health professionals, engineers, accountants, business professionals, teachers, entrepreneurs, athletes and more. You will know that you have transformed lives, communities and the world.

Join us as we plant seeds and watch them thrive!

– Charlotte Parks, Vice Chancellor of Development
