2020 State of Higher Education
Gulfport and Long Beach Chambers of Commerce are partnering to bring a new virtual program to highlight the higher education institutions in Coastal Mississippi. The State of Higher Education will feature Presidents Dr. Mary Graham of the Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, Dr. Tommy King of William Carey University and Dr. Rodney Bennett of the University of Southern Mississippi. This virtual webinar will be held on September 22, 2020 at 11:00 a.m.
As economic drivers of Coastal Mississippi, these higher education institutions enhance workforce development through specified training courses, provide jobs to our region and attract new talent to prosper our region. We hope that you will join us in this partnership to educate the business community and the public on the latest higher education programming, changes to learning due to COVID-19, growing economic development efforts and more.
