Proud to be

Consistent with College STAR, each institution may designate a program nomenclature particular to its campus.

Bronco STAR
(Supporting Transition, Access, and Retention)

Bronco STAR is a program at Fayetteville State that works toward increasing access and decreasing barriers to a college degree for students who learn differently.  The Bronco STAR project works in several ways:

For Students  Students who have learning differences, and do not learn the traditional way may benefit from our package of services.  Bronco STAR participants have regular meetings with an Academic Success Coach, one-on-one tutoring, dedicated study space in the Bronco STAR HUB, access to assistive technology, and the ability to learn from one another to meet school and life goals. 

For Faculty  The STAR Learning Communities program also addresses students' needs by helping faculty become better teachers.  Our faculty development program shares ideas based on the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in regular workshops as well as semester and year-long learning community partnerships. 

For Staff   STAR Champions are our partners in the effort to increase transition, access, and retention in many student-centered offices across campus.  Champions' primary role is to serve as a point of contact for our students when they need assistance. 

Eye to Eye   The Eye to Eye Organization at the Fayetteville State University (FSU) is a mentorship and advocacy student organization that works with students on FSU campus and from the local Fayetteville community who are diagnosed with learning disabilities and ADD/ADHD. Eye to Eye strives to build the students' self-esteem and teach them self-advocacy skills. Additionally, Eye to Eye spreads awareness about learning disabilities and ADHD on campus. Brandon Kinkle & Kaphazija Fulmore serve as our chapter leaders. For more information, please contact or 

Want to find out more? At no cost, students can complete the quick application process at any time during the year. Students do not have to have a diagnosis or an IEP to participate in the program, but they must be admissible to FSU.  For more information, contact us at or 910-672-1506.
