College Board appoints Bynum as MVSU president
...
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - The College Board unanimously voted Tuesday to appoint William Bynum as the next president of Mississippi Valley State University.
Bynum, most recently vice president of enrollment management and student services at Atlanta's Morehouse College, was confirmed after meeting with students, faculty and alumni in Itta Bena.
"It is an awesome blessing to be the seventh president of Mississippi Valley State University. I prepared for this, obviously, for my lifetime," said Bynum, who has been part of programs to prepare presidents for colleges that serve minority populations.
Shane Hooper, of Tupelo, the College Board member who led the search committee that chose the 51-year-old Bynum, said Bynum was the right person to reverse the declining number of students at Mississippi's smallest public university.
...
Bynum was chosen in a closed search as the sole finalist from among more than 70 applicants.
...
"Dr. Bynum was an effective leader at Morehouse," Wilson said in a statement issued by the College Board.
...
Besides stopping the school's sharp enrollment decline, Bynum will also have to unite a fractured alumni base and cultivate more donations.
...
College Board spokeswoman Caron Blanton said Bynum will start full-time on Nov. 6.
...
Bynum said he plans to attend this weekend's football game between Valley and Jackson State University to meet more of the university's supporters. He said he plans to meet with Rankins to coordinate a transition, with plans to write a more detailed plan of what he hopes to accomplish.
"The most exciting thing for folk to hear is I plan on living on campus from Day One," Bynum said. "I will be a highly visible and involved president."
Valley is building a new president's house, but Bynum said he would live in another faculty house on campus until it's complete. Oliver drew criticism for renting an apartment in Greenwood rather than living on the campus.
Bynum earlier worked at Lincoln University in southeastern Pennsylvania, and before that at Clark Atlanta University and at Davidson College in North Carolina. The sociologist earned his bachelor's degree from Davidson and his master's degree and doctorate from Duke University.

On Thursday, Oct. 3, the Mississippi College Board announced that William Bynum, vice president of enrollment management and student services at the private Morehouse College in Atlanta, Ga., is the preferred candidate to become president of Mississippi Valley State University. MVSU is the smallest of Mississippi's eight public universities. It's located in Itta Bena.
The College Board selected Bynum after a months-long closed search. Officials reviewed more than 70 candidate applications that a campus search advisory committee chose for submission to the board. The board will vote on Bynum's appointment after Bynum completes a visit to the MVSU campus to meet with faculty Tuesday, Oct. 8.
Bynum, 51, is a native of Rocky Mount, N.C. He received a bachelor's degree from Davidson College and a master of arts and a doctoral degree from Duke University, where he was an Endowment Fellow. All of Bynum's degrees are in sociology.
A 20-year educator with an extensive background in administration, Bynum has worked at Clark Atlanta University, the Georgia Institute of Technology and Davidson College. He also served as vice president for student affairs and enrollment management at Lincoln University in Pennsylvania. Bynum joined the Morehouse staff in 2009.
Bynum said in an interview with the Associated Press that if he officially becomes president of MVSU, he will reverse the decline in enrollment at the university by focusing on high schools that have traditionally sent students to Valley, expanding recruitment to areas with growing numbers of high-school graduates and using financial aid to bolster recruitment in new territory. He will also focus on making sure current students stay in school and graduate, and on unifying alumni and community members associated with the university.
