Mississippi Public Universities Accountability and Transparency

The Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning (IHL) is committed to accountability and transparency for students, parents, faculty and staff, and taxpayers. This accountability and transparency website is a tangible example of that commitment and offers all stakeholders access to important information quickly and easily. All stakeholders play a key role in the success of the university system and help us fulfill our tri-fold mission of education, research and service.

Serving as a central repository of information and data related to the system, the Executive Office, its eight public institutions and medical center, the website will not include information that is confidential, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) related information, or any other information that is subject to prohibitions by state and/or federal law/regulation(s).

Legislation was enacted to revise the Mississippi Accountability and Transparency Act of 2008 and to create and maintain a website providing access to the public for all taxpayer investments in state government. This website meets the objectives of the legislation for the university system. Download a copy of Mississippi Code 27-104-155.
