Shorette hired at Alcorn in administrative affairs

LORMAN — Alcorn State University recently hired C. Rob Shorette II as presidential ombudsman for administrative affairs.

In his capacity, Shorette is responsible for strategic planning, managing and contributing to the research being produced in the office of the president, and serving as a liaison between the president and various constituencies on campus.

“Our major priority is to ensure that the strategic vision for Alcorn State University is captured in such a way that it can be communicated effectively and integrated into all aspects of university operations,” Shorette said. “The idea is for a strong and comprehensive strategic vision to unite entities across campus in pursuit of achieving clearly defined outcomes, of which the success truly depends on the contributions of every member of the Alcorn community.”

Currently, Shorette is writing his dissertation in pursuit of a doctoral degree in higher, adult and lifelong education at Michigan State University.

His research focuses on HBCUs, diversity and equity in higher education, college access and success, and educational policy.

He also worked in various roles for the university, including serving as site coordinator for the college ambition program that provided college-going support and subject-specific tutoring at a local high school, contributing to the delivery and assessment of campus-wide student service initiatives, and teaching an undergraduate course through the College of Education.
