Res Non Verba. "Deeds Not Words." Our school motto defines FSU's emphasis on civic and social responsibility. Our students contribute more than 50,000 hours to community service each year. By assisting organizations such as public schools, Boys and Girls Clubs, and the Cape Fear Valley Medical Center, students bond with each other and the community and discover the power of reaching out to those in need.

Grant was recognized for outstanding leadership and service by North Carolina Campus Compact.

A Distinguished Legacy

We come from a proud and distinguished history. FSU is the second oldest state assisted institution in North Carolina, founded by seven extraordinary black men in 1987 to provide education for black children. Today, our university is a constituent institution of the prestigious University of North Carolina system. We are celebrating our 150th anniversary with over 200 events. Don't miss out and join in the celebration over the next year.
