(JACKSON, Miss.) — Jackson State University’s latest Education Achievement Council report card on student enrollment, degrees awarded, college readiness and other variables is now available to the public.

This week, the Mississippi Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning announced that the report cards for all Mississippi universities are posted online at http://www.mississippi.edu/eac/. The 2018-2019 institutional profile for JSU, in particular, can be viewed here, and a copy of the report may be obtained from JSU University Communications.

The report card reflects the progress JSU has made toward educational goals for the university. It contains information on student enrollment, degrees awarded, college readiness, student progress, research and other university measurements. The documents also include university-specific information, along with system-level data. Archived reports from previous years also are available online.

In 2010, the Education Achievement Council was established by the Mississippi Legislature to sustain attention to the state’s goal of increasing the educational attainment and skill levels of the state’s working-age population benchmark to the national average by 2025. Council members are representatives of state government, public K-12 leaders, business community leaders and public, private and proprietary higher education officials.

JSU is a diverse, technologically advanced four-year university steeped in history and committed to preparing its students to become global leaders. It is also a top-20 HBCU, according to the U.S. News and World Report.
