No home game this week, but you got to love the NCA&T game time experience....

Having 20% non Black enrollment is new at NCA&T, but not for some of the other public HBCUs in the state. How have you all that are stockholders at FSU or WSSU handled maintaining your "culture" while seeing increases in non traditional students.

General Discussion Forum / Emotional debate at Shaw University

Emotional debate at Shaw University: Losing a legacy or charting a brighter future?

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- They passionately debated a new direction at the oldest Historically Black College and University in the South in a community meeting Monday night over Shaw University's plans to modernize its aging campus by leasing parts of its valuable downtown property to outside developers.

The goal is to create the premier urban HBCU campus in the state. But Shaw's leadership wants the community's support for its big plan. And they still have some work to do.

"The gentrification is not going anywhere," exclaimed one meeting participant at the sometimes passionate meeting inside Yancy Hall -- Shaw's newest building which was constructed in 2009.

N.C. A&T’s accelerating ambition

"The momentum has A&T on the verge of being classified as a Research One Doctoral University under the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education framework, joining Duke University, UNC Chapel Hill and N.C. State University, says UNC System President Peter Hans."


EAST GREENSBORO, N.C. (April 13, 2022) – North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University will add new leading faculty, enroll more top engineering students and create world-class research facilities with $35 million in new capital and operational state funding from the Engineering North Carolina’s Future (ENCF) program, campus officials announced today.

ENCF is a special initiative of the N.C. General Assembly aimed at dramatically beefing up the high-tech workforce for a state exploding in new business growth, with companies such as Apple, Toyota, Corning, Merck, Honda and Boom Supersonic either announcing new campuses or operations in North Carolina over the past year.

"Already the nation’s No. 1 university in graduation of Black engineers, North Carolina A&T and its College of Engineering are prepared to do much more with the new allocations from ENCF."

This is great news for NC HBCUs  :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

UNC Board of Governors raises cap on out-of-state admissions at UNC System HBCUs

More out-of-state students will soon be able to attend historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in the UNC System.

On Thursday the UNC System Board of Governors voted to raise the caps on out-of-state admissions  at three of the system’s five HBCUS – North Carolina A&T, North Carolina Central University and Elizabeth City State University.

As Policy Watch has reported, the universities have lobbied for this change and each would benefit for different reasons. The cap increase is also a testament to the appeal of the system’s HBCUs and their special place within it.

To ensure qualified North Carolinians can receive the greatest benefit from UNC System schools, out-of-state admissions at most campuses are currently capped at 18%. Schools can be penalized if they admit a higher percentage of incoming first-year students from out of state. (The NC School of the Arts and the School of Science and Math have a different cap because they are specialized schools.)

"A&T, already the nation’s largest HBCU, is also the most successful in North Carolina. Historically large private donations and its eight-year capital campaign recently generated a record $181 million in giving to the Greensboro-based university. Fall 2021 enrollment was 13,332 – up 6% over 2019. The school is already meeting its obligation of admitting as many well qualified North Carolinians as it can, administrators say. But they say they’re turning away too many well qualified out-of-state students because of the current cap. Raising that cap another 10% should help with that as the school continues to grow."


EAST GREENSBORO, N.C. (March 29, 2022) – North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University continued its ascent in the U.S. News & World Report graduate program rankings, showing up with national rankings in four key academic areas.

Graduate programs in the Willie A. Deese College of Business and Economics led the pack, with its highest ranking yet at No. 94 nationally. The Deese College broke into the top 100 last year, and continues to be the highest-ranked public historically black college or university (HBCU) graduate business program in the nation.

"A&T is now in its eighth year as America’s largest HBCU, according to U.S. Department of Education data. It is ranked No. 1 among all HBCUs by Money magazine and Washington Monthly magazine, as well as the top-ranked public HBCU by Forbes."
