The Clyde Muse Center, named in honor of Dr. Clyde Muse who has served as President of Hinds Community College since 1977, is located off of Interstate Twenty in Pearl, Mississippi on the Hinds Community College - Rankin Campus. Dean and Dean Associates, Architects, P.A. provided the 60-acre campus expansion master plan for the Rankin Campus which included a new Multi-Purpose Center.

The building serves the campus, community, and State in many capacities. It provides a variety of spaces for instructional, educational and social uses. The facility houses a multi-function auditorium/conference space, classrooms, an administrative suite, a two-story lobby and a food service area. Six classrooms provide space for student seating as well as for secondary computer labs. Two industrial start-up classrooms allow for various manufacturers to set up and provide training on campus. The administrative suite includes offices for the facility management team as well as a large conference room that can be used as additional meeting space for the events utilizing the multi-purpose area.

A large break room doubles as a student lounge area as well as a food service space for large scale meetings. A full catering kitchen accompanies the meeting space and serves as classroom space for the culinary arts program.

An open two-story lobby provides a view through the building leading to an outdoor plaza along a large water feature. The spine of the building provides breakout space for the multi-purpose area room and connects to a second lobby along the north end. The auditorium seats up to 3,000 people and features a fixed stage and a balcony. This flat floor auditorium can accommodate trade shows and large banquets and has moveable panels which allow the space to be divided into a multi-room conference center.

The 20.4 million dollar facility was completed in 2011 and has filled a niche in the Jackson metropolitan area. This new state of the art building stays booked four to five days a week and provides a desirable venue for corporate, professional, educational, community and political events.
