“The MSCD Program at DSU provided me with a new set of lenses for viewing the world around me. As I begin my career, I recognize the energy and excellence that arises from collaboration and the importance of developing partnerships with local businesses and organizations.  On a more practical level, my course work and the excellent faculty at DSU provided me with a strong foundation for the analytical research and writing that I encounter daily as a practicing attorney.”

“The MSCD program allowed me to attend professional conferences in Montreal, Canada, Ithaca, NY, and Tuskegee, AL to present and hear presentations from a diverse group of people. I was able to work with faculty on community improvement projects which provided me with in-depth knowledge about the importance of grassroots organizing. As one of the founding members of the Delta State University, Community Development Student Organization I became a member of an elite group of students—the Hearin Fellows. It was these life changing experiences that help set the course for an exciting career in helping individuals help themselves.”
