The John Marshall Foundation hosted Marshall University president Jerome A. “Jerry” Gilbert, Ph.D., in August to discuss collaboration and continued partnership opportunities. Gilbert was named the 37th president of the University on Oct. 20, 2015. A Mississippi native with a background in biomedical engineering, Gilbert previously served for nearly six years as provost and executive vice president of Mississippi State University. Before that, he was the university’s associate provost and associate vice president for academic affairs for six years. Earlier roles include head of the Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering and coordinator for the biomedical engineering graduate program in the Bagley College of Engineering. During his visit, which included a tour of the John Marshall House, Marshall gravesite, and the JMF office, Gilbert emphasized his focus on The Marshall University Creed, inspired by the life and example of John Marshall, and expressed his dedication to helping the Foundation in its mission of bringing the legacy of John Marshall to life.
