Saint Augustine's University

  • 1315 Oakwood Ave.
    Raleigh, NC 27610

Located on a 122-acre campus, the school was incorporated in 1867 by the Protestant Episcopal Church to train freedmen quickly to prepare other freed slaves to teach. In 1928 the school became a four-year institution. Saint Augustine's University now offers programs in five academic divisions and 30 degree programs. Renowned graduates include Sadie and Bessie Delany, co-authors of “Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters’ First 100 Years,” and George Williams, current Saint Augustine's University athletic director and head coach of the 2004 Men’s Olympic Track and Field Team in Athens, Greece and assistant coach of the 1996 U.S. Olympic Team in Atlanta.
