Dear Jackson State University Family:
Happy holidays! Please know that I am extremely grateful and humbled to have the opportunity to serve you as your President starting in January 2011. During this holiday season I am especially thankful for all that you have given to Jackson State University. You have brought JSU thus far and with your support, help and continued hard work, there is no doubt in my mind that Jackson State University will reach new heights.
I look forward to getting to know each of you, to learning the campus culture, and to working with you in the years to come. I truly believe that when talented and committed individuals such as you get on the same page, so to speak, anything is possible. In these dire economic times, it is important that we take the time to assess where we are and then move forward with institutional deliberation, determination, and intentionality based on the best ideas, the most thorough plans and decisive implementation.
Enjoy this holiday season and remember Jackson State University in your prayers and thoughts. Be safe and joyous, and I’ll see you in the New Year.
Carolyn W. Meyers, Ph.D.
