As part of an effort to revitalize downtown Meridian, the Urban Land Institute has recommended creating a strong arts district.
Although the city has yet to approve the proposal, officials with Mississippi State's Meridian campus say the school is taking steps to offer more arts-related programs.
"We're certainly looking at arts programs as part of the growth and development of the Meridian campus and we're working on that now," said Dr. Nick Nicholson.
Within the next six months, Nicholson said he should know if MSU Meridian will be able to offer any new arts programs.
