 About North Carolina Central University

North Carolina Central University, a Historically Black University, first opened its doors to students in 1910. The school’s mission is to prepare students academically and professionally to become leaders ready to advance the consciousness of social responsibility in a diverse, global society. The university has succeeded in this regard and boasts many points of pride in both academics and athletics. North Carolina Central University provides both undergraduate and graduate level degrees in a variety of academic disciplines. The university was recently ranked by Washington Monthly as one of the top 40 schools in the nation in terms of contribution to the public good. NCCU is emerging as a leader in the study of health disparities and was the first of North Carolina’s state-supported universities to make community service a graduation requirement. Along with a strong academic curriculum, the university’s drive for excellence extends to an athletics program designed to promote physical fitness, sportsmanship, and respect. NCCU sponsors fourteen men’s and women’s athletic teams that participate in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I as a newly readmitted member of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC). The NCCU Eagles have enjoyed both regional and national recognition over the past decade, including multiple national championships in a variety of sports.
