First, Alcorn State University president M. Christopher Brown brings the long-departed Jackson State-Alcorn State football match-up back to Lorman for the resurrection of the Soul Bowl. Now he’s telling the university’s academic deans, all of them, to reapply for their jobs.
Brown told the Vicksburg Post that Alcorn has not reposted and reevaluated the positions in many years.
“We were concerned that we did not have the right people in those jobs,” Brown said.
He said the school faced two critical issues with regard to administrative and leadership positions, one being “a history of lifetime appointments” and the other contracts that did not differentiate the salary earned from faculty duties and that for administrative duties.
