Join the FAMU College of Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities (CSSAH) as we raise $10,000 to support our CSSAH Shines Professional Development and Student Engagement Program as part of the university's 1887 Strikes Day of Giving campaign. While we are asking 100 supporters to give $100, any amount helps get us closer to our goal. The funds will be used to cover the cost of travel, lodging, meals, registration fees and other expenses that too often prohibit our students from participating in opportunities that make them competitive. To give, text 1887Strikes16 to 71777 or visit the CSSAH 1887strikes profile page to give online. Your donation today will help our students Shine!




We remain available during our normal hours of operation: Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-Noon and 1 p.m.-5 p.m. For immediate assistance, please call 850.599.3024.
