Flagship Forward

Inspire. Discover. Transform.

The University of Mississippi (UM) has embarked upon a bold path of ever-increasing excellence in making a positive difference in society through higher education. Every day, across all our campuses, we see the power of higher education at work — in inspiring excellence, discovering new knowledge, advancing health and wellness, and making our world a better place. The power of higher education can truly transform lives, communities, and the world. FLAGSHIP FORWARD is our roadmap to doing so.

This strategic plan focuses upon the main campus in Oxford and its regional campuses in Tupelo, Southaven, Grenada, and Booneville, which we collectively refer to as UM Oxford. FLAGSHIP FORWARD also leverages some university-wide transformative initiatives for UM as a whole, which includes the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) in Jackson and other venues in Mississippi.
