About N.C. A&T

North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (N.C. A&T) is a public, land-grant university and constituent member of the University of North Carolina system. It is a historically black university. The university is located on 200 acres in Greensboro, North Carolina, 300 miles south of Washington, D.C., and 350 miles north of Atlanta. It was established in 1891.

The university’s history as one of only 18 historically black 1890 land-grant universities is reflected in its strengths in agriculture, animal science, engineering, and environmental science. A growing student enrollment reflects the demand for North Carolina A&T’s programs in those areas as well as in the arts and sciences, business and economics, education, nursing, and technology.

N.C. A&T also has a rich civil rights legacy. In 1960, four freshman students, now known as the Greensboro Four, are credited with sparking the nationwide sit-in movement at the Woolworth’s lunch counter in downtown Greensboro. Civil rights leader Jesse Jackson is an alumnus of the university.
