As a public, high-research activity land-grant university, North Carolina A&T is a research engine, education center and economic catalyst serving not only this state, but the nation. With students drawn from nearly every state in America, and six continents around the world, our educational impact is as broad and deep as any university in the Southeastern United States. We are not only America’s top-rated historically black university (HBCU), but its largest for seven consecutive years, as well as its leading HBCU STEM institution. We produce more African American engineers and agricultural scientists than any university in the nation and are home to the top public HBCU business school in the country.
A&T has grown substantially over the past decade in enrollment, in academic programming and in research capabilities, adding four new centers of excellence in the past year alone. And we are nowhere near done. Our relentless implementation of a visionary strategic plan will see us expand to an enrollment of more than 14,000 by 2023, add important facilities like the $90 million Engineering Research and Innovation Center due to open in 2021 and a new 450-bed residence hall and grow our research program through expansion of strategic partnerships with a broad range of federal agencies and private concerns. We encourage you to get to know A&T, and what may be possible for your organization in relationship with America’s no. 1 HBCU.
