The Mississippi Center for Supercomputing Research (MCSR)
was established by the Mississippi legislature in 1987, and given the mission to provide high-performance computing support to
all the campuses governed by the Board of Trustees of State
Institutions of Higher Learning.
Funded by the legislature each of the last 19 years, the center has attracted researchers into the state of Mississippi, enabled Mississippi researchers to conduct research on a much higher plane, and helped them
to garner research money for graduate students and
equipment. Today, MCSR continues to enhance both the instructional and
research climates for all IHL institutions.
