Saint Augustine’s University [formerly St. Augustine’s College] founded in 1867 as Saint Augustine’s Normal School and Collegiate Institute for blacks. The school was created through the joint efforts of the Freedman’s Commission of the Protestant Episcopal Church and a group of clergy and laymen of the Diocese of North Carolina. With more than 1,800 students, the institution provides the highest quality education and seeks to develop the highest ethical and moral values in its undergraduates.
