Overview

Founded in 1887, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) is a historically black land-grant university located in Tallahassee, Florida.

It is the third largest historically black college and university (HBCU) in the United States, and today offers a comprehensive fine program of courses, at undergraduate, graduate, doctoral and professional levels. FAMU welcomes a diversity of students who make up a learning community of approximately 10,000 students from across the United States and abroad.

FAMU offers more than 50 undergraduate majors, spanning a wide range of subject areas. The university provides a superb learning experience, empowering students to achieve far beyond their expectations through a culture of teaching excellence, innovative research and scholarship, academic collaboration, inclusive support, and public service.

The university has a five-year Strategic Plan, outlining the next steps in its journey of development. From 2022-2027, FAMU will continue to invest wisely in its campus and resources, and foster the university's distinctive identity while focusing on the following five key priorities:

  • Student Success
  • Academic Excellence
  • Leverage the Brand
  • Long-Term Fiscal Health and Sustainability
  • Organizational Effectiveness and Transformation.

In a recent assessment, FAMU topped the list of highest-ranked public HBCU in the U.S. according to News & World's Report.

In addition to its academic prowess, the university provides an excellent student experience, with many activities and events organised throughout the year, and a lively social scene.

What's new

What's new

FAMU is a future-focused institution which is continually breaking new ground and proving its commitment to enhancing the opportunities available to its students.

The university has recently secured a USD 1.5 million grant through NASA's new Data Science Equity, Access, and Priority in Research and Education (DEAP) opportunity. The DEAP scheme is designed to provide new opportunities for students at HBCUs to get involved with live NASA research projects by conducting data science research which can be used in future agency missions.

Associate FAMU Professor Beni Dangi, Ph.D. has developed an exciting new three-year research proposal, which combines artificial intelligence and machine learning to better understand the formation of interplanetary salt crystals.

The project is titled ''Effects of Gravity on Creeping Salts and Salt Mixtures: Developing Image-based and AI-enhanced Diagnostics for Determining Chemical Compositions.'', and aims to give new insights into identifying where water may have existed in our solar system and beyond. The project hopes to contribute work that will give a better understanding of the surface geology of other planets, and inform the future of lunar and Martian exploration.

This three-year initiative is expected to positively impact the research and education potential of minority students in the field of science and space exploration.

Teaching quality

Teaching quality

One of the reasons behind FAMU's success is the quality and enthusiasm of its teaching faculty. The institution's teaching staff are a team of highly qualified and experienced professional educators, who work with the success of their students as a top priority.

They are superb communicators who benefit from being able to have more contact time with their students than is typical for a top university. FAMU's student-staff ratio is 14:1, improving on the national and state average. Additionally, 41.6 per cent of the university's classes have fewer than 20 students, which means more individual attention and a more personalised learning experience.

FAMU is continually looking for areas to improve, and pushing for excellence. The school has an ongoing quality enhancement plan which aims to help students become better at academic writing through investments in classroom technologies and campus resources.

The university's works to prepare students for graduate school, ensuring they are better suited to the demands of their future employers. In order to accomplish this, the QEP will create opportunities for students to enhance their writing proficiency, reflect on their own writing, and provide meaningful feedback to their peers.
