A Little about FAMU...
Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University was founded as the State Normal College for Colored
Students, and on October 3, 1887, it began classes with fifteen students and two instructors. Today,
FAMU, as it has become affectionately known, is the premiere school among historically black colleges
and universities. Prominently located on the highest hill in Florida’s capital city of Tallahassee, Florida
A&M University remains the only historically black university in the eleven member State University
System of Florida.
Under the administration of John Robert Edward Lee, Sr., [1924-1944], the College acquired much of
the physical and academic image it has today. Buildings were erected; more land was purchased; more
faculty were hired; courses were upgraded, and accreditation was received from several state agencies.
By 1944, FAMC had constructed 48 buildings, accumulated 396 acres of land, and had 812 students and
122 staff members. In 1949, under the guidance of William H. Gray, Jr. [1944-1949], expansion, along
with reorganization, continued; the College obtained an Army ROTC unit, and student enrollment grew
to more than 2,000.
Perhaps one of the greatest achievements came under the presidency of Dr. George W. Gore [1950-
1968]. The Florida legislature elevated the College to university status, and in 1953, Florida A&M
College became Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University. Obtaining university status meant
restructuring existing programs and designing new academic offerings to meet the demands of
producing quality students at the professional and graduate levels. Between 1953 and 1968, the Schools
of Pharmacy, Law, Graduate Studies, and Nursing were created.
The University was re-organized into academic areas instead of departments. The University’s physical
plants increased with the addition of the Women’s Complex (apartment-type dormitory), Clifton Dyson
Pharmacy Building, new poultry building and dairy cattle resting shed, and renovation of University
Commons, Coleman Library and Tucker Hall. The University Hospital, which was closed in 1971, was
renovated and became the Foote-Hilyer Administration Center.
Originally designed to meet the needs of the underrepresented and the underprivileged, Florida A&M
University continues to serve the citizens of Florida and the world through its provision of pre-eminent
educational programs. These programs are the building blocks of a legacy for the hallmark of Florida
A&M University: “Excellence with Caring.” FAMU, Florida’s Opportunity University, is committed to
meeting the challenges and need of future generations.
