School Description

Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) was founded in 1887. The School was originally called the State Normal College for Colored Students and started out just with just 15 students and two instructors. The School was officially designated as an institution of higher education in 1905 and was elevated from College to university status in 1953.

Today FAMU is a premiere school among historically black colleges and universities and remains the only historically black university in the eleven member State University System of Florida. FAMU is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges & Schools and additionally has specialised accreditations for its different programs as well.

Some of its notable alumni include: John Thompson, Chair, Microsoft; Althea Gibson. The first African American to win the Wimbledon women’s single crown; Dr. LaSalle D. Leffall, Jr., nationally acclaimed cancer surgeon and first African-American president of the American Cancer Society; and Congresswoman Carrie Meek, the first African American woman elected to the Florida Senate.
