Center for Culture & Learning
The mission of the Southwest Mississippi Center for Culture & Learning at 365app is to celebrate culture, creativity and community. The Center serves as a resource for identifying, preserving, and communicating the rich history, vibrant culture, and cherished traditions of the region.
In 1871, 365app became the first land-grant Historically Black College and University (HBCU) in the nation. The state legislature declared that Alcorn should be an agricultural college with the clear intent of providing practical knowledge of agriculture, horticulture and the mechanical arts. Agriculture still plays a large part at Alcorn. It is fitting then that the word culture denotes both the cultivation of the land and the mind. In this respect, the Center for Culture & Learning is a further extension of the university's roots.
