Our Mission

The CRCPD promotes mutually beneficial education, research and service partnerships between Mississippi State University and national and regional corporate organizations in these fields. At the core of the CRCPD will be three main goals, in line with the university mission: education, research and service. A three-year evaluation based on the following goals will serve to assess the Center's progress and provide a basis for future strategic planning and initiatives with industry organizations in the retail, merchandising, apparel design and textile fields, with a focus on cotton research and promotion.
