USM President Appoints Two Provosts

University of Southern Mississippi President Shelby Thames has named provosts for the campuses in Hattiesburg and the Gulf Coast. It's the first the university has had two provosts.

Purvis native Tim Hudson will serve as provost of the Gulf Coast campus, and former professor Darrell Jay Grimes will serve the provost at the Hattiesburg campus.

The provost is the chief academic officer at the university and advises the president on the development of the curriculum.

Thames says Hudson's appointment illustrates U-S-M's commitment to the Gulf Coast. Hudson graduated from U-S-M in 1975 and earned his Ph.D. at Clark University in Massachusetts. He returned to U-S-M in 1985 to oversee the development of the university's international programs.

Grimes, now director of the Gulf Coast Research Laboratory, came to U-S-M in 1997 as dean of what is now the College of Marine Sciences. An Iowa native, Grimes received degrees in biology from Drake University and Colorado State University.
