Vicksburg Expansion Program

Our mission in the Vicksburg area is to be an integral part of the growth and development of this community by supporting the economic, civic, educational, and social development of Vicksburg and the surrounding communities. We will accomplish this by bringing the full resources of a respected University to the table as we partner with the Vicksburg-Warren Alcorn Alumni Association, Hinds Community College Vicksburg, the Vicksburg-Warren Public School District, other educational organizations, the Chamber of Commerce, elected leaders, the private sector, and community volunteers.

Here are some of our ideas that you can watch for in the coming months:

  • More continuing education programs to inform and to entertain our citizens
  • Certification and workforce development programs that will help local businesses hire highly trained employees and help employees enhance their skills in such areas as early childhood education
  • An active alliance with the Vicksburg-Warren ministerial community to provide them with resources to serve their congregations and to learn from them how the university can better serve our mutual constituents
  • Increased focus on securing external grants to promote new projects at ASU Vicksburg and in the community.

As the administrator for the Vicksburg Campus, my door is always open. In two words, our center’s philosophy is simple:  community service. If it serves the needs of the communities and the people we are here to serve, you will find us to be open and eager partners. Let’s work together to advance Alcorn State University, Vicksburg and Warren County, and the surrounding communities with a shared vision and a spirit of optimism.

Sincerely,

Robert Z. Carr, Ed.D.
Executive Director, Vicksburg Expansion Center
