Samir Husni Magazine Innovation Center

Among those who have helped the University of Mississippi build a powerful national reputation for academic excellence is Samir Husni — a new faculty member in the 1980s who was rumored to be “doing something” with magazines. That something has transformed many students and prepared them for rewarding careers over the 35 years Dr. Husni has been teaching in the Meek School of Journalism and New Media.

To honor Dr. Husni's dedication to his students — both in the classroom and far beyond — please join an initiative to raise $100,000 to name the Magazine Innovation Center at the Meek School in his honor. The center would become the Samir “Mr. Magazine” Husni Magazine Innovation Center, a fitting tribute to a creative genius and top-tier professor.

About the Magazine Innovation Center


The Magazine Innovation Center, founded in 2009 at the Meek School of Journalism and New Media at Ole Miss, is an international collaboration linking the best thinkers in publishing, marketing, printing, advertising and distribution. It seeks to generate focused innovation in magazines and other print media. The magazine and magazine media industry employ the world's great minds. The center will channel their creativity and intellect (away from the grinds of everyday work and challenges) to provide blueprints for productive change.
