Student Organizations

Students organizations are a vital entity at Jackson State. Each organization provides and promotes leadership development, community service, and school spirit. Each year, active organizations sponsor various activities such as seminars, lecture series, social and cultural events. At Jackson State, we recognize more than 60 active student organizations. The CSLEI maintains current information on each organization, its officers, calendar of events, advisor(s) and roster of active members.  For more information, please contact Ms. Mea Ashley, 601-979-3308.
