The organizational structure of graduate programs at Fayetteville State University is a decentralized model. The College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Business and Economics, and the School of Education are responsible for the graduate programs within the school or college. The graduate faculty, program coordinators/directors, department chairs, assistant/associate dean, and dean of each school/college are directly responsible to ensure that each degree program is of the highest quality. Each school/college has a School/College Graduate Programs Committee. In addition, there is a university-wide FSU Graduate Council which provides oversight to all graduate programs at the university.
