Office of the President
Welcome to Alcorn State University! We are the “Home of Brave Champions and Scholars”. What an honor and privilege it is to return to my alma mater and lead America’s Oldest Historically Black Land-Grant University as its 20th president.
This is a special moment for me because I fondly remember gracing this beautiful campus as a student years ago and am forever grateful for the solid foundation it has provided me. Alcorn is where you belong, because it is where exceptional professors and mentors are cultivating the next generation of leaders for the global marketplace.
To be a great leader means to be an accessible servant of the people. My life experience and career in higher education has provided me with the tools and skills needed to serve and lead this campus successfully. I believe that supporting and working closely with our incredible community of students, faculty, staff, and alumni will help us ascend to levels beyond our expectations.
Alcorn has gained a strong reputation for producing the best and brightest and equipping them with the skills they need to lead successful and productive lives. We offer a rewarding academic experience and are known for a rich tradition of success in athletics. Working together with our strategic partners and friends, we will stay consistent in promoting and achieving Alcorn excellence.
I am excited about Alcorn’s future and look forward to shaping a shared vision that advances our mission as a premiere, comprehensive HBCU land-grant university. My goal is to keep our beloved institution of higher learning on the winning path in all endeavors.
Whether you are a visitor, student, employee or alumnus, we welcome you because, We Are Alcorn!
Purple and Gold Forever,
Felecia M. Nave, PhD
