State investments in Florida A&M University have generated a high return, and the University is determined to continue attracting and educating students who will enter Florida’s workforce and reflect the diversity of our State.
The University boasts an enrollment of over 11,000 students (nearly 2,000 at the graduate level). Nearly 80% of FAMU students are from Florida.
FAMU has fostered a growing national research presence, which attracts nearly $50 million annually from state, federal, and private sources. This is particularly noteworthy, because most institutions that out perform FAMU in attracting research dollars are typically much larger and older and often include medical schools.
STEM – U
Nearly a third of FAMU’s student body (about 4,000) are pursuing degrees in one of the sciences, technology, engineering, mathematics, or health care related disciplines that are critical to state and national need.
FAMU is committed to providing Florida with the talent necessary to transform its economy to one that is sustained by knowledge and innovation.
