Dr. Philip C. Williams

Welcome and congratulations!
You've come to the right place!


Here at McNeese State University the phrase "Excellence with a Personal Touch" is more than a slogan. It is the heart and soul of our campus culture. It is a culture we want you to experience as soon as you encounter one of our enthusiastic students, proud alumni, committed faculty, or dedicated staff.


As the sixth president of this fine university, I find that I have inherited a legacy of solid financial stewardship, academic excellence, exciting cultural and athletic opportunities, sustainable growth, and unlimited potential. Our student body is diverse-hailing from a wide variety of geographical regions, ethnicities, religions, philosophies, and points of view. Southwest Louisiana culture is a rich jambalaya of colorful festivals, fine food, musical happenings, and an atmosphere of family fun and hospitality.


If you are considering the possibility of joining us as a student, please visit the website of our Office of Admissions and Recruiting.


Regardless of your reason for seeking information, you can also contact me directly by at pwilliams@mcneese.edu.


I will either answer you myself or ensure that your inquiry is directed to the person most able to assist you.
