In 2003, the Center for University Scholars was establish to promote the thoughtful integration of teaching, learning and inquiry among faculty at Jackson State University.  Through its commitment to cultivating faculty excellence in scholarship and teaching, to fostering intellectual and trans-disciplinary dialogue, and to nurturing the next generation of world-class scholars, faculty at JSU enjoyed more than a decade of campus-wide support for their development in teaching, research, and professional service.  

Beginning in 2017, the Center was renamed and refocused on the development of tenure-track junior faculty through the support of the U.S. Deprtment of Education's Title III program. The new Faculty Development for Student Success (FDSS) program, has two major aims: to improve teaching and learning through innovative curriculum design and to increase faculty development opportunities and create a model working environment for faculty development.
