JSU President Carolyn W. Meyers and other university representatives will be joined by city, county and elected leaders for the event.

Dr. Nicole Evans, assistant provost for institutional research and planning, said the university is excited about the Madison site.

“We’ve always said the goal was to expand the educational opportunities for residents in the Jackson metropolitan area,” Evans said. “This site opens the doors for numerous people to get started on a new career path or complete a degree they had already started.”

The Madison site is an opportunity for the university to continue to address the educational needs of Jackson’s surrounding communities. JSU Madison will accommodate traditional and non-traditional students by offering day classes as well as evening, weekend and online courses.

There will be 11 undergraduate courses offered during the first and second summer sessions and five graduate courses offered during the eight-week graduate session. Students can register for courses in business, criminal justice, education, health care administration, human resource development, philosophy, principle-centered leadership and technology.
