New president of Delta State to be introduced Thursday

The Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning will officially introduce the next president of Delta State University on Thursday, April 6.

Dr. Daniel J. Ennis, who was announced as the school’s ninth president last week, is coming to Cleveland after two decades at Coastal Carolina University. During his time in Conway, S.C., Ennis held a multitude of administrative positions, including provost, dean of humanities and fine arts, vice president of academic outreach, and co-director of the University Honors Program.

While serving as provost from 2021-2023, Ennis helped Coastal Carolina in enrollment, retention, and fundraising – three sectors Delta State needs drastic help in. Since 2014, DSU has seen a 29 percent drop in enrollment, leaving the public university with just 2,556 students.

Ennis, who has also spent extensive time as a professor, will be introduced at E.R. Jobe Hall on the campus of Delta State at 11 a.m. CT. A livestream webcast of the announcement can be watched here.
