The Board of Trustees of the State Institutions of Higher Learning announced Tuesday the unanimous decision to hire Christopher Brown for the position.
Alcorn State has been without a permanent leader since George Ross stepped down in February to become president of Central Michigan University. Norris Edney, a longtime ASU faculty member, has been interim president.
Brown currently serves as executive vice president and provost at Fisk University in Nashville. He will begin serving as president of Alcorn State in January.
