Academic Affairs | Jackson State University

Welcome to Academic Affairs

“The hook is being able to tell our stories through documentation. While some universities take an organic approach to telling their stories, others are so busy that they don’t always show the wonderful things that occur. This is our shot to talk about those efforts. But, it’s a collaborative process.”
