AD White will begin on June 11, 2012.
President Brown stated in the transition meeting, “Alcorn must be committed to knowledge and character at every level of the campus. The heightened focus on campus athletics and corollary affairs require us to have unit heads with the experience and gravitas to serve our students and stakeholders with excellence. Our recent hires in men’s basketball and football warrant us having an athletic administration equivalent to the front office of any professional sports team.”
