Vision Statement

Our goal is to increase the number of Black male preK-12 school teachers.

Mission Statement

The mission of Fayetteville State University (FSU) School of Education's Black Men Teaching (BMT) Program is to recruit Black male tenth and eleventh grade students from local high schools to enroll in FSU's Teacher Education Program by providing them with high-school and post-high school mentoring and academic support.


Given the urgent need to increase the number of Black male teachers in preK-12 schools nationwide, the creation of a "Black Men Teaching" (BMT) Program at Fayetteville State University is a timely venture that will, undoubtedly, benefit the university, the local community, and local schools.
