University of Mobile alumnus Lonnie A. Burnett, Ph.D., is the university’s fifth president, following his unanimous selection by the Board of Trustees on Nov. 22, 2019.
The longtime history professor and dean was only six months into a 16-month term as interim president when the Board of Trustees made the position permanent.
“It quickly became obvious there was no ‘interim’ in Dr. Lonnie Burnett’s commitment to lead the university to becoming all that it can be.”
