  • History & Memorable Moments

The North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (A&T) was established as a “mechanic college” for the “Colored Race” by an act of the General Assembly of North Carolina, ratified March 9, 1891.[citation needed] The act read in part: "That the leading objective of the college shall be to teach practical agriculture and the mechanic arts and such learning as related thereto, not excluding academic and classical instruction." This college was established along with what North Carolina Agricultural and Mechanical College, now known as North Carolina State University, but due to sperate but equal whites and blacks could not attend college together.[1]

Due to the separation, the College operated in Raleigh (at the private Shaw University) until 1893 when it moved to the city of Greensboro, which donated $11,000 in cash and 14 acres (57,000 m²) of land for its campus. The original course of study of A&T included languages and literature, mathematics, business, agriculture and military science. Female students were a part of the college from 1893 until 1901, but were not enrolled again until 1928. In 1915, the name of the College became the Negro Agricultural and Technical College of North Carolina by act of the NC General Assembly. In 1967, the name of the College was changed to North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University.[1]
