(JACKSON, Miss.) – Jackson State University Vice President for Research and Federal Relations Dr. Felix Okojie has been named to the Board of Directors of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI).

Jackson State University is a charter member institution of the NAI, which was founded at the University of South Florida to recognize inventors who have a patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Five JSU researchers were among the first inventors to be inducted into the academy. The academy works to enhance the visibility of university technology and academic innovation, mentors innovative students, and translates the inventions of its members to benefit society.

Okojie joined Jackson State University nearly 20 years ago. In his current capacity, he has helped bring in more than $700 million to the university. He holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Auchi Polytechnic, a master of public health from Jackson State University and a doctorate in education from Atlanta University.
