Statistics

Statistics As a historically black university with long history of producing STEM graduates, we believe that FSU can contribute to bridging this national gap in STEM occupations. FSU is a public comprehensive regional university offering degrees at the baccalaureate, master's, and doctoral levels. It is one of sixteen constituent Universities and Colleges within the University of North Carolina (UNC) System. It is among the most diverse campus communities in the state of North Carolina and the nation, with 65.3% of its student population of 6,179 in fall 2013 being African Americans, 18% Caucasians, 2.2% Native Indians, 1.6% Asians, and 5.8% Hispanics. FSU presents a great environment for the TIDES grant with its degree offerings in Math, Math Education, Computer Science, Biology, Biology Education, Forensic Science, Biotechnology, and Chemistry. Even though the Math Education and Biology Education programs were discontinued as individual programs in fall 2013, plans were developed by FSU to add them as concentrations under either the existing Math and Biology programs or a new Secondary Education program. Additionally, the institution offers a 3+2 dual degree in Engineering in collaboration with North Carolina State University (NCSU); students complete one of computer science, chemistry, mathematics from FSU and one of civil, electrical, computer and chemical engineering from NCSU in 5 years. The SCISEL program impacts on average, approximately 410 STEM students each fall semester during the grant period and beyond. Approximately 82% of these students will be women and members of under-represented minority group.
