JSU professor named chairman of partnership board

Word from Jacksonville State this afternoon is that Lori Owens, an associate professor of political science and public administration, is the new chairman of the board for the Alabama Higher Education Partnership.

"I look forward to...making sure that our universities receive the necessary support," Owens said. "I admire the success that university presidents and other partnership members have achieved on behalf of higher education."

The partnership began in 1997 and serves as an advocacy group for higher education in the state. It represents students, faculty, staff, alumni and other supporters of the state's four-year universities and aims to provide a common voice and organize efforts to advance.
