Established in 2003, the Center for University Scholars facilitates research productivity and teaching effectiveness and re-tooling for Jackson State University’s full-time tenure-track faculty members. During the 2013-2014 academic year, the Center will assist in implementing the Research and Scholarly Engagement Academy. Also, the Center awards travel subsidies for research presentation and graduate assistantships to full-time faculty members.

Along with these grant programs, the Center sponsors teaching and learning fora, professional development workshops and its flagship program, the annual University Scholars Symposium, November 7-8, 2013. The symposium features University Scholars presenting their findings to the university community and an internationally-recognized scholar presenting the annual Holden Lecture.
