Fayetteville State University

Fayetteville State University is a regional public comprehensive university providing quality education to its students through a basic liberal arts foundation, specialized professional training, and specific graduate programs. Instructional programs are organized under the schools of Business and Economics, Education, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, and the College of Basic and Applied Sciences. Individual university departments, degree programs, and service functions hold memberships and accreditations with appropriate professional organizations.

FSU's location, Fayetteville (city-county population: 308,000), is a trade and business center in North Carolina's sandhills area, near the resorts of Southern Pines and Pinehurst, and designated an "All American City." Fayetteville is home to military installations at Fort Bragg and Pope Air Force Base. The university provides undergraduate instruction in an education center at the nearby military installations on Fort Bragg and Seymour Johnson Air Force Base and at community colleges in its service area.

FSU is committed to equality of opportunity. The university actively seeks to recruit and enroll a student population that reflects the diversity of the region. Chancellor James Anderson is the eleventh chief executive officer of the 140-year-old historically black institution.
