Chancellor's Message

Dear Bronco:

Chancellor AndersonWelcome to the Fayetteville State University family! I am pleased that you have selected FSU, the second-oldest public university in North Carolina, for your undergraduate studies.

FSU provides a high-quality education to more than 6,200 undergraduate and graduate students. Our university provides academic programs in the humanities and social sciences, in basic and applied sciences, in teacher education, and in business and economics. We have offered teacher-education programs since our genesis in 1867; a four-year nursing program, forensic science, and fire and emergency services administration are among our newest programs.

We have almost 250 faculty members whose first priority is the facilitation of your learning. Among the faculty, you will find award-winning scholars and researchers who have also won accolades in teaching. In addition, you will work with professors who include undergraduate students in their research projects, which are often funded by agencies such as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the U.S. Department of Education, the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and the Rockefeller

Our campus is experiencing a renaissance. New buildings are being erected, while existing buildings are being renovated - all so that you will have modern facilities in an attractive and comfortable setting. The grounds are constantly groomed. Our residence halls are all air conditioned and are constantly being improved for your comfort and safety. The campus is
fully wired; you will have access to state-of-the-art technology seven days a week for up to 18 hours daily.

To ensure that students have multi-faceted experiences during their university years, FSU offers an array of extracurricular activities, community-service and internship opportunities, and student organizations designed to help you to develop your leadership skills, to foster your sense of civic responsibility, and to broaden your cultural and intellectual horizons. We are home to a number of championship sports teams-in football and golf, for example. We sponsor an annual Chancellor's Speakers Series featuring nationally prominent individuals. We offer a range of activities such as the annual Miss FSU and Mr. FSU competitions.

Inside this catalog you will find important information about the baccalaureate-degree programs available to you at the undergraduate level. Your guide to the university, the catalog also includes all university centers, programs, and policies. Please review it carefully so that you learn about the support services and opportunities that we have put in place to meet your needs.

Our goal is to ensure that you will graduate with the skills, knowledge, values, and attitudes required for success in the larger world in which you live and work after you earn your bachelor's degree. We embrace you as an FSU student, and we commit to doing everything in our power to make your years with us a productive, positive experience. We look forward to the day when we can count you among our thousands of outstanding Bronco alumni.
