-With more than 140 years of excellence in education, Alcorn State University long has been renowned among historically black colleges and universities. Under the leadership of President Alfred Rankins Jr., we are reaching for our next goal: to be lauded not just as a great HBCU, but as a great university.
With your help, we can achieve that goal. With the support of alumni and friends like you, we can build the strongest academic programs and make them available to the best and brightest students. We can achieve this goal while remaining true to our core value—that both knowledge and character matter. Join us as we take your University to the next level. Remember what Alcorn means to you, and pay it forward to the next generation.
