Douglas Vinzant, The University of Southern Mississippi’s Vice President of Finance and Administration, announced his resignation via mass email to the university community on March 31.

“Dr. Vinzant has been a key member of the University’s executive staff since his arrival in the summer of 2013,” said USM President Rodney Bennett in a university statement. “He has made a significant impact in many areas, to include budget development, physical plant operations, human resources, information technology and support for enrollment initiatives among others.”

Vinzant has been at the University of Southern Mississippi since June of 2013, assisting in all of the university’s efforts when it comes to doling out finances and assisting the Hattiesburg and Gulf Park campuses.
