Enrollment highest in FAMU history

Transforming Talent to Meet World Needs was the message Florida A&M University President James H. Ammons delivered during his state of the university address to administrators, faculty, staff, students, alumni and retirees.

Ammons shared with the audience that this fall FAMU has enrolled 13,068 students, including 2,700 freshmen. This figure is preliminary but marks FAMU’s highest enrollment in history.

“The educational process is crucial to our nation’s success in a global knowledge-based economy,” said Ammons.  “A college or a university education is more important to our collective prosperity today than ever before. Innovation through research also is important to our nation’s success in this highly competitive global marketplace.”
