According to its website, Alabama State University was established in 1867 by nine men who were formerly enslaved, known as the Marion Nine. It is located in the birthplace of the modern civil rights movement, and is one of the oldest institutions of higher education in the United States founded specifically for Black Americans.
ASU is part of the HBCU community that is increasingly known for its diverse student body. The university is proud to have students from over 41 states and 21 different countries. Their student-faculty ratio of 20 to 1 ensures that every student receives individual attention and mentorship. ASU believes that this personalized approach provides students with the support and knowledge they need to turn their dreams into reality.
By the year 2023, our prestigious institution will provide over 60 degree programs that cater to both undergraduate and graduate students. These programs range from our revered teacher education program to high-demand courses like the Doctorate in Physical Therapy, the Ph.D. in microbiology, the Master of Accountancy, the Master’s in Social Work, and the Bachelor of Fine Arts in dance.
Some of the notable alumni from the institution include the late Archbishop of the Catholic Church, Joseph Lawson Howze, legendary football coach Woody McCorvey, international rugby star Phaidra Knight, and Peabody Award-winning actor and director, Timothy Ware Hill. Additionally, the list also features Rev. Ralph David Abernathy, Broadway stars Bonita Hamilton Ceasar and Brandon McCall (Lion King), and rapper 2 Chainz, who recently attended a special screening of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse in Atlanta.
