Welcome to Jackson State University

I bring you greetings on behalf of all of the talented staff in the Division of Student Affairs. We in student affairs are committed to ensuring that your out of class experience is as stellar as your in class experience. Each of you is unique with your own story and needs. We are here to help you tailor your experience as you continue to write your story. 

It is important to note that you are the sole author of your story. Never compare your story to anyone else’s. Your story is special and is designed for you by you. Every good author needs a set of good editors and we are here to do that for you. Make sure to come and chat with us about student organizations, internships, your physical and mental health, and leadership engagement just to name a few. We are here to support you throughout your entire collegiate journey. As a 2004 graduate of Jackson State I know first hand the amazing opportunities that await you. My story began to take shape during my 4 years at Jackson State and I am starting a new chapter back at JSU with you this year.  I want to encourage you to fully embrace this time in your life. 

We are on an institutional journey to elevate. How are you seeking to elevate yourself in your personal life journey? Our institutional motto is challenging minds, changing lives. Challenge and support is what we do well in student affairs. Being challenged can be tough at times but it is necessary for the growth and development needed to help you achieve your full potential and actualize the story you will write every day. We are so excited to welcome you and get to know you. I look forward to learning more about each and every one of your stories.

Best,

Fran’Cee Brown-McClure, Ph.D.
