Meet Jackson State University's president, Thomas K. Hudson


In this episode of In The Margins, we talk with Jackson State University (JSU) president Thomas K. Hudson about his university’s new strategic plan and the critical need for HBCUs in the academic landscape.
Tune in as Hudson shares his unconventional path to the presidency and how he plans to elevate JSU not only in research prominence but in academic distinction, excellence, and student success as well. Continuing the historic mission of HBCUs, he propels JSU to become part of the solution to the problems facing society today.


“What gets measured gets done, right, and you have to have a measurable goal that you're looking to achieve in order to continue to elevate and get pushed to that successful level.”
“Jackson State is a place that can take you from where you are and make you who you are meant to be. And we want to continue that journey even to today. That's been our story for 144 years and continues to be that.”
