Jim Borsig will take over in January as president of Mississippi University for Women.

The state College Board offered Borsig the job Wednesday and he accepted.

Borsig spent several hours meeting with students, faculty and other groups on campus Wednesday. The job pays $218,000 a year, with about $25,000 of that coming from the university's foundation.

Borsig is currently the associate commissioner for external relations and public policy at the College Board. He holds degrees from the University of Southern Mississippi and Mississippi State

The board announced Nov. 17 that Borsig was its preferred candidate to lead MUW.

Claudia Limbert was MUW president from April 2002 until this past May. Allegra Brigham has been interim president since Limbert retired.

    Could the Selection Board not find a woman to be President of the oldest State-supported women's college in America? Only in Mississippi . . .
