Higher Education Reporter

Molly Minta, a member of the Mississippi Today education team, is working in partnership with Open Campus, a nonprofit news organization focused on higher education, and the Woodward Hines Education Foundation, a Mississippi nonprofit that believes postsecondary degrees and credentials are vital in improving the lives of Mississippians, building communities, and strengthening our workforce. 

Prior to joining Mississippi Today, Minta worked for The Nation and The Appeal.

“I am so excited to be joining the talented team at Mississippi Today as the first reporter dedicated to covering higher education. Between COVID-19 and the student-led protests for racial justice, this is a crucial time for higher education in Mississippi. There are so many stories to be told.
