WHAT WE’VE DONE IS GREAT. WHAT WE’LL DO IS EVEN BETTER.
For nearly 130 years, North Carolina A&T has believed in the power of students to change the world. Today’s 12,556 Aggies are some of the most high-achieving students ever to attend A&T. They excel in the classroom and in academic competition, whether coding like wizards in a national hackathon, writing a flawless business case contest entry or creating a self-driving car.
As a land grant, doctoral research university with a national reputation in STEM education, N.C. A&T is proud of the impact that the 70,000-plus alumni have across America. From Silicon Valley to the halls of Congress to farms across North Carolina, Aggies innovate, discover, serve and lead. Because that’s what Aggies DO.

Historically Minority-Serving Institution
The UNC System Board of Governors created a special Committee on Historically Minority-Serving Institutions in 2018 to study and assess six institutions’ unique challenges and promising opportunities. The goal of the committee is to create strategies that will ensure these institutions’ future growth by promoting investments, opportunities, and awareness throughout the state.
