FAMU RISING

“FAMUly,” we need your support in investing in our students as we continue to grow a prosperous Florida A&M University. Join us today and contribute to FAMU’s transformational future! Together, we will rise!

About Our Campaign


In 2017, the Florida A&M University Board of Trustees approved the
“FAMU Rising” 2017-2022 Strategic Plan presented by President Larry Robinson, Ph.D.

“FAMU Rising” was developed with broad-based stakeholder input from faculty, staff, alumni, students, corporate partners and friends of FAMU over a two-year period.

The collective input led to six (6) transformative strategic priorities that will enable FAMU to rise and strengthen its competitive position in the nation as we work to produce highly-trained professionals with undergraduate and graduate degrees, who will be successful contributors in service to their communities.

The six (6) strategic priorities of “FAMU Rising” are listed below, and serve as the foundation of our four (4) fundraising priorities during this campaign. We invite you to support one (1) or more of our fundraising efforts and secure your position as a contributor to the successful implementation of our strategic plan.”
