Did you know….
Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) are institutions of higher learning that were created to educate newly freed slaves during Reconstruction. These institutions have fostered African-American leaders for over a hundred years. North Carolina is home to ten Historically Black Colleges and Universities. North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (NCA&TSU)– known for its engineering programs and with a legacy that includes “The Greensboro Four,” and Ronald McNair – has moved quietly and resolutely toward its goal of becoming the best black college in the country. North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University is the largest black college in the country. This spring, NCA&TSU plans to open its largest building — a new 150,000-square-foot student center. The university has also broken ground on the $90 million Engineering Research and Innovation Complex (ERIC). North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University College of Engineering produces more African-American engineers than any university in the nation.
