The organizational structure of graduate programs at Fayetteville State University is a decentralized model. The College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Business and Economics, and the College of Education are responsible for the graduate programs within the college. The graduate faculty, program coordinators/directors, department chairs, assistant/associate deans, and the dean of each college are directly responsible to ensure that each degree program is of the highest quality. Each college has a Graduate Programs Committee. The university-wide FSU Graduate Council provides oversight to all graduate programs at the university.
