President's Message Picture

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Copiah-Lincoln Community College. I am honored to begin my first year as Co-Lin's ninth president. Co-Lin, as we are affectionately known, is a place of opportunities. I invite you to learn more about all that Co-Lin offers by exploring our website or visiting one of our three beautiful campuses. You’ll find that Co-Lin is a place where you will feel at home.

Co-Lin was founded in 1928, and we have an annual student enrollment of approximately 3,000 students. Our educational mission is broad, but the success of our students is our primary goal.

We are incredibly proud of our students. They are involved in student government, community service, academic honor societies, and dozens of activities and campus organizations. Co-Lin students have been recognized nationally with our Eta Omega Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) and honored twice as the No. 1 PTK Chapter in the nation.

We are also proud of the success of our athletic programs. In recent years, Co-Lin student-athletes and coaches have won state and regional championships in men's basketball, softball, golf, and tennis, and the Lady Wolves Softball team claimed the first national championship in school history in 2023.

The faculty and staff at our three Co-Lin campuses continue to work diligently to benefit our students. They care about the individual success of each of our students. All of us at Co-Lin are optimistic about the future of our college and are committed to providing quality education and support services to the students and communities we serve. Please don’t hesitate to contact me or a member of our administrative team to learn why we believe Co-Lin is The Place To Be!
