People of the U

Every institution is rich with personal stories. We want to know ours, and to share them with you.

Do you know a student, staff member, volunteer or faculty member at the University of Mississippi Medical Center whose story would make an interesting feature, or who deserves to be recognized?

Someone who you think more people should know about because of his or her commitment to their job and/or the people they work with or for? Who has a fascinating hobby? Who takes part in a remarkable group? Who has accomplished something amazing?

We want to share what makes them special and unique. To nominate someone to be considered for a People of the U feature, submit this short form. If your nominee is chosen, Communications and Marketing staff will be in contact to learn more about his or her personal story.
