Founded as Natchez Seminary in 1877 by the American Baptist Home mission Society, the school was established as Natchez, Mississippi “for the moral, religious and intellectual improvement of Christian leaders of the colored people of Mississippi and the neighboring states.” In November 1882, the school was moved to Jackson; in March 1899, the curriculum was expanded and the name was changed to Jackson College.
The purpose of this Association is (1) to formally associate the alumni of Jackson State University into a legally based organization; (2) to provide financial and moral support to the University through its membership; (3) to establish local chapters; (4) to elect regional vice presidents and other board members and executive officers; (5) to foster support for the University at the local, state, regional, and national levels; and (6) to regulate the activities of local chapters throughout the nation.
Established in 1965, the Metro Atlanta Chapter of Jackson State University's National Alumni Association exists to support the mission and vision of Jackson State University, Jackson, Mississippi. To that end, the chapter actively engages in student recruitment, alumni retention, community outreach and fundraising activities.
