The Center for University-Based Development (CUBD) is an initiative by Jackson State University to assist with the redevelopment of the one-mile area around the Jackson State University main campus. This office also reviews opportunities to facilitate development near all other Jackson State University campuses.
As the only legislatively designated Urban University in the State of Mississippi, Jackson State University believes that we are uniquely positioned to influence the cultural and governmental center of the State of Mississippi.
Jackson State University also believes in being a good neighbor. The surrounding neighborhoods offer Jackson State University colleges and educational initiatives to apply “studies to life”. Human Development, Community Development and Business Development are the main categories of focus for CUBD as we work together to redevelop our “community” by Challenging Minds and Changing Lives.
Our staff is available to talk with you about our community development initiatives between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday (except for holidays). Feel free to contact us at 601.979.2255.
