The campaign to locate Delta State in Cleveland began several years before the doors opened for the first summer session in 1925. There is evidence that the subject was brought up for discussion as early as 1910. Senator Roberts would eventually take the idea all the way to the State House floor. Ultimately, the efforts of many people would lead to the start of a new institution.  


All Delta State University academic programs, academic policies and academic units are under the leadership of the Provost/Vice President for Academic Affairs. The Office of Academic Affairs is committed to providing the highest quality of education possible and support for all students to progress and graduate. 


Although Delta State University is primarily a teaching institution, we, as an academic community, recognize the importance of scholarship as a partner to effective teaching. Moreover, good teaching is largely influenced by the ability of faculty to remain current in their disciplines. Therefore, research and faculty & staff development are important, not only for professional development but as links to students. Take advantage of the opportunities provided by the University so we can best accomplish our university mission. Our students will be the beneficiaries. 


Delta State University Career Services is centralized on the third floor of the H. L. Nowell Student Union. We assist undergraduate and graduate students and alumni in continuing their career journeys!

We did more of theories than practical in the time of learning...

University life: the gate to a better future
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

My university experience was amazing. I developed various academic skills and learning habits during my 4 years of university study.

Enjoyable Period

It was an enjoyable and unique experience that I spent learning and participating with students in various events and activities at the university. The specialty of Oral and Dental Medicine is a great mix between a doctor, an engineer and an artist, and this makes this specialty interesting. We have learned to treat and help people, and this distinguishes the medical field...
