JSU President resigns

JACKSON, Miss.- The President of Jackson State University has resigned. 

Carolyn Meyer sent her resignation letter to the Mississippi Institute for Higher Learning, and it was accepted by the Mississippi Public Universities’ Board of Trusties.

A copy of the letter is shown below:

The response was as follows:

“The Commissioner of Higher Education Dr. Glenn Boyce, on behalf of the Board of Trustees, has accepted a letter of resignation from Dr. Carolyn Meyers, President of Jackson State University. The resignation is effective November 1.

“We appreciate Dr. Meyers’ service to Jackson State University and wish her well in future endeavors,” said Boyce.

An interim president will be named and a timeline for the presidential search will be announced soon.

“Students remain our top priority,” said Dr. Boyce. “We are confident that Jackson State will move forward and continue to be an excellent institution and source of pride for students, faculty and alumni.”

Meyer’s resignation comes barely a week after the IHL reported that JSU was critically low on funds. The initial report showed that the University had depleted nearly 89 percent of their funds in the past year. That figure went from 37 million to just 4.2 million this year.
