TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) – For the fifth year in a row, Florida A&M University has topped the U.S News & World Report list of public Historically Black College and Universities (HBCU). The university celebrated the announcement during a news conference on Monday.
FAMU also rose to No. 3 among all HBCUs according to the report. The university now also ranks 91 among the U.S News & World Report’s top public national universities, jumping 12 spots.
In a news release, FAMU leaders credited its five-year strategic plan “Boldly Striking” for its streak of success in the rankings.
Just a few weeks ago, the university celebrated receiving a record $96 million in research awards. FAMU is currently working to reach a Carnegie Research 1 classification. The ranking reflects the amount of research being done at a school, and no HBCU has that ranking right now.
WCTV’s Brianna Shaw attended FAMU’s news conference celebrating the U.S News & World Report rankings. She’ll have live coverage at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.
