Sour Grapes by USM Drives USA Away

The USA Board of Trustees in March voted to support the establishment of a USA satellite campus in Gautier after Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College sought a formal partnership following consultations with civic and business leaders in the Mississippi Gulf Coast region.
Since that time, conflict has arisen among institutions within the higher education system in Mississippi, the colleges stated in a joint news release. 
"While USA appreciates the invitation to partner with MGCCC and remains committed to meeting the educational needs of the upper Gulf Coast region, the proposed satellite campus has been the subject of unanticipated discord within Mississippi," said USA President Gordon Moulton.
 University of South Alabama officials decide against satellite campus on the Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College campus in Gautier, Miss.
