The university offers Bachelor’s degrees in 43 areas, Master's degrees in 22 areas, and one doctoral degree in educational leadership. The university is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. History In 1867, seven African-American men - Matthew N. Leary, Andrew J. Chesnutt, Robert Simmons, George Grainger, Thomas Lomax, Nelson Carter, and David A. Bryant - paid $136 for two lots on Gillespie Street and converted themselves into a self-perpetuating Board of Trustees to maintain this property permanently as a site for the education of black children in Fayetteville. General O. Howard of the Freedman's Bureau, one of the best-known friends of black education, erected a building on this site, and the institution became known as the Howard School. By a legislative act of 1877, the North Carolina General Assembly provided for the establishment of a Normal School for the education of black teachers. The Howard School was chosen as the most promising because of its successful record during the previous ten years. It was designated a teacher training institution, and its name was changed to the State Colored Normal School. In 1939, under Dr. J. Ward Seabrook the school became Fayetteville State Teachers College, thereafter being authorized to grant the Bachelor of Science degree in Education. The college received both state and regional accreditation in 1947. Dr. Seabrook retired in 1956 and was succeeded by Dr. Rudolph Jones. During Dr. Jones’ administration, the curriculum was expanded to include majors in secondary education and programs leading to degrees outside the teaching field. The name of the school was changed to Fayetteville State College in 1963. Also, under Dr. Jones’ leadership, six additions were made to the physical plant to accommodate a rapidly expanding enrollment. In 1969, the institution acquired its present name, Fayetteville State University, and Dr. Charles A. Lyons, graduate of Shaw University, Jr. was elected president. By a legislative act in 1972, Fayetteville State University became a constituent institution of University of North Carolina system. The Chief Executive Officer's position was re-titled to Chancellor, with Dr. Lyons becoming the first Chancellor of the university. During his tenure, the curriculum was expanded to include a variety of both baccalaureate and master’s level programs. In addition, the Fort Bragg-Pope AFB Extension Center, in conjunction with the weekend and evening college, was established in order to provide military personnel and other persons employed full-time with the opportunity to further their education. The general academic structure took its present configuration in 1985 when the University became a Comprehensive Level 1 Institution. In addition to expanding program offerings and services, eight buildings were added to the physical plant during this period to include the Charles Chesnutt Library.[2] Dr. Thelma Jean Bryan made history in July 2003, accepting the job as Chancellor of Fayetteville State University as the first female leader of the institution, moreover the first African-American female chancellor of the University of North Carolina System. In June 2007, she resigned as Chancellor. Student life Student organizations Fayetteville State University students may participate in over 78 registered student organizations, including sororities and fraternities. An active intramural program offers students the opportunity to participate in flag football, basketball, track and field, soccer, and swimming.
