The Family and Consumer Sciences Department of the Extension Program is made up of human scientists from Alcorn State University who focus on issues that affect our daily lives. These issues include: Health, Finances, Nutrition and Child and Family Development. We work together as a team to bring the best science to solving problems and enhancing lives.
The goal of Family and Consumer Sciences is to help Mississippi families, and individuals develop and grow in safe and healthy ways. The F&CS Extension program at Alcorn State University is centered around research-based education that focuses on the science and the art of living and working well in our complex world. We survey the need of the communities we serve. Through our community needs assessment and local program advisory committees we learn about the needs of the community and how we can help provide education that helps people improve society and the economy.
