Tigers football team helps JSU earn Carnegie Foundation distinction


Earlier this year, the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching recognized Jackson State University, along with three other Mississippi higher education institutions, for its outstanding work in the community. The designation puts JSU among 115 schools nationwide that earned the prestigious distinction.

To be selected, colleges and universities had to provide descriptions and examples of their institutional focus on community engagement.

The Jackson State University Tigers football team is part of the reason why JSU has been ranked nationally in its commitment to community service. The team visits Blair E. Batson Children’s Hospital in Jackson throughout the year.

  1. It’s no surprise to me that these young men are community-minded. Every year during college spirit week JSU football players and coaches visit my school and speak to our students about the importance of doing well in school. College spirit week is the week before the Southern game, but the Tigers come every year.
