About the Center
The Roger F. Wicker Center for Creative Learning was established in 2004 and was initially funded by a congressionally-directed grant through the US Department of Education. Housed on the campus of Mississippi University for Women in Columbus, MS, the Center seeks to provide action-based innovative programs to strengthen communities. The Center’s mission is to provide innovations in learning, service, and research. This mission is realized through developing and delivering quality, innovative programs and services that fall into one of the Center’s three goal areas:
· To support economic and social advancement for the community;
· To develop and implement innovative programs and models for positive change;
· To provide opportunities for professional growth.
Through programs, services, print materials, and technology, the Center serves as a vehicle for connecting preK-12 learners, parents, educators, and community members with best practices for innovative learning.
