A bill calling for the relocation of MSMS to Mississippi State’s campus was replaced in committee Tuesday [March 5] with language placing the Mississippi University for Women under MSU’s control.

As originally written by Sen. Dennis DeBar Jr., R-Leakesville, Senate Bill 2751 originally called for MSMS to begin the 2026-2027 school year on the land-grant institution’s campus. The new version states MSMS will stay on MUW’s campus; however, it tasks the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning with making a plan to transfer ownership and control of MUW to MSU.

Under section two of the new bill, plans for the transition should be implemented by July 1, 2025. It also includes a new name for MUW: The W at Mississippi State University.

The amended bill will be presented to the Miss. Senate. If approved, it will move to the House of Representatives to be presented there. 

DeBar and MUW President Nora Miller have yet to respond to requests for comments by The Vision.
