"Mississippi State University is part of Mississippi’s economic bedrock. Throughout our history, MSU has served to grow and sophisticate Mississippi’s economy while building stronger, more diverse and more vibrant communities. Our DNA as an institution is found in the university motto – learning, research, and service. As Mississippi’s leading research university, we empower and energize the state’s promising future. Our students, faculty and staff take pride in that shared responsibility to pay that motto forward. The Office of Public Affairs will reflect MSU’s drive to be the best in the messages we share across campus, around the state and beyond."

~ Sid Salter, Chief Communications Officer
and Director, Office of Public Affairs
