When it chartered The University of Mississippi on February 24, 1844, the Mississippi Legislature laid the foundation for public higher education in the state. The university opened its doors to 80 students four years later, and for 23 years it was Mississippi’s only public institution of higher learning. For 110 years, it was the state’s only comprehensive university.
