That's My World Tuesday #30: Shaw University


"Go Bears"
Raleigh, NC - December 2008 (Click to embiggen)

Be a virtual tour guide on That's My World Tuesday

Since I pretty well got caught without an entry this week, I'm cheating a little. This is Shaw University, one of the older institutions of higher learning in Raleigh and one with a history that reaches well beyond the city or even the state. But since I know very little about it, I'm going to quote the university's website at http://www.shawuniversity.edu/.
About Shaw University
Shaw University, founded in 1865, is the oldest historically black college of the South. Shaw is a private, coeducational, liberal arts university affiliated with the Baptist Church. The University awards degrees at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The primary mission of the University is teaching with the commitment to maintain excellence in research and academic programs that foster intellectual enhancement and technological skills.

Additionally, the University stresses character development, which includes religious, cultural, social, and ethical values. Ultimately, Shaw University endeavors to graduate students with demonstrated competencies in their chosen fields of study.
