Shaw University was the first college established for African Americans in the Southern United States.[3] Rev. Dr. Henry Martin Tupper came south immediately after the end of the Civil War. He established the Second Baptist Church of Raleigh (the name was changed to Tabernacle Baptist Church in 1910, and is now the Tupper Memorial Baptist Church.) [4] Later Tupper and his Bible study students constructed a two-story church, with one story being dedicated to the church, and the other to what is known as the Raleigh Institute, where he taught freedmen. By 1915, still supported by the American Baptist Home Mission or ABHM, the Institute had an enrollment of 291 students, about evenly divided between men and women. African Americans, also known as Afro-Americans or black Americans, are an ethnic group in the United States of America whose ancestors, usually in predominant part, were indigenous to Sub-Saharan and West Africa. ... Historic Southern United States. ...


It was renamed Shaw Collegiate Institute after Elijah Shaw, benefactor of Shaw Hall, the first building constructed for the college. In 1875, it became Shaw University. In 1873, Estey Hall was erected for female students, making it the first such dormitory in the U.S. on a coeducational campus. The Leonard Medical School was founded in 1881 as the first four-year medical school in the South to train black doctors and pharmacists. It was also the first medical school in North Carolina to offer a four-year curriculum. It operated until 1918. Given their importance in the education of African Americans, both Estey Hall and Leonard Hall have been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A typical plaque showing entry on the National Register of Historic Places. ...


Education was seen by freedmen as among their most critical needs. In many 19th century communities, the roles of minister and teacher were closely allied, and Shaw's teaching had a strong spiritual base. Shaw University trained many of the new teachers who taught African Americans in the South after the Civil War. They worked for a profound cause, the advancement of their race. Northern white teachers also came to the area to teach. Newly free adults and children eagerly sought to learn to read and write. Most southern states imposed segregated schools by the late 1870s. Segregation means separation. ...


African-American teachers nurtured their students and were part of their communities, acting as role models to encourage children to get education. By 1900, more than 30,000 black teachers had been trained and put to work in the South, and the majority of African Americans had become literate. It was a huge achievement and the energy of black teachers played a key part.[5] While some teachers taught children with only a few years more of schooling than their students, Shaw was among the colleges that graduated the most accomplished men and women teachers. It was a highly regarded profession.


Shaw University has been called the mother of African-American colleges in North Carolina, as North Carolina Central University, Elizabeth City State University, and Fayetteville State University all had founding presidents who were Shaw alumni. The founder of Livingstone College spent his first two college years at Shaw before transferring to Lincoln University. What became North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University was located on Shaw's campus during its first year.

U.S. Civil Rights Movement to present

The Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), also pronounced,"Snick." a major force in the American Civil Rights movement from 1960 to 1966, began at a conference held at Shaw University, led by Ella Baker in 1960. It was created to coordinate activities among numerous civil rights groups, to conduct sit-ins such as those that had taken place in Greensboro, support the leaders, and publicize their activities. Major political leaders of the next generation started with SNCC, and it played a strong role in Freedom Summer and the voter registration drive in Mississippi in 1964 and 1965. The Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (or SNCC, pronounced snick) was one of the principle organizations of the American Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s. ... The civil rights movement in the United States has been a long, primarily nonviolent struggle to bring full civil rights and equality under the law to all citizens of United States. ... Ella Josephine Baker (December 13, 1903 - December 13, 1986) was a leading African American civil rights and human rights activist beginning in the 1930s. ...


With the end of legal segregation after civil rights legislation, Shaw University and other historically black colleges and universities found that part of their purpose had disappeared. Where they at one time had offered the only chance for higher education for African Americans in the South, they had to compete for students with larger universities, both public and private, which sometimes had more financial resources and amenities. They spent time to redefine their purpose and best ways to reach both students and stakeholders.


By the mid-1980s, Shaw University's student body had declined and the university was deeply in debt. With the presidency of Dr. Talbert O. Shaw (1988-2003) (not related to the namesake), Shaw University was revived and the student body grew markedly, from 1600 to 2700, while the university also succeeded in raising its standards. President Shaw restructured debt and worked to raise funds and build support from all sectors of the city. He joined civic groups to highlight the status of the university. He also reached out to the Raleigh professional, business and the state's political communities, to create opportunities for students to take advantage of the university's unique location. He worked to redefine the advantages a small liberal arts university could offer African-American students and to create new strengths in the departments. In the 1990s, Shaw ran a successful capital campaign to renovate historic buildings and construct new campus facilities, including a center for teachers' education. The percentage of faculty holding doctorates increased substantially. [6]


Initiatives have continued under the new president. In recognition of its progress, in 2005 Shaw's Divinity School received a 10-year accreditation from the Association for Theological Schools. Also, in 2005 construction started on a new Center for Early Childhood Education, Research and Development. The following year the university partnered with the City of Raleigh to create a Citizens' Participation and Leadership Institute, to encourage civic engagement and cultivate leadership throughout the city.[7]


Another example of new directions is that the university is collaborating with the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill on a Partnership for the Elimination of Health Disparities Center. As noted by Dr. Daniel Howard, center co-director at Shaw University, establishing the research resources at Shaw, meant that "more African American college students can become health researchers, which is a definite plus when trying to eliminate disparities." [8] Collaborating with a major research university adds to what Shaw can offer in its programs of health and physical research, but students still have the opportunity to work closely with faculty in a small college setting. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is a public, coeducational, research university located in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, United States. ...


Academics

Shaw University has the following colleges and centers: Center for Prostate Research; the College of Arts and Sciences; the Institute for Health,Social, and Community Research; College of Business and Technology,Center for Early Childhood Education, Research and Development; the Center for Biostatistics and Data Management;Shaw University Social Gerontology Institute for Minorities, the Center for Survey Research for the Social Sciences; the College of Professional and Graduate Studies; and the Shaw University Divinity School (one of the few fully accredited theological institutions in the state of N.C.). Its football stadium is Durham Co. Memorial Stadium, in Durham North Carolina.


To expand its programs for adult education, Shaw University has established the College of Adult and Professional Education (CAPE). The university has created numerous CAPE centers to provide professional education in other cities of North Carolina. Shaw University offers degree programs in Greenville, NC; Kannapolis, NC; High Point, NC; Rocky Mount, NC; Ahoskie, NC; Fayetteville, NC; Durham, NC; Wilmington, NC; and Asheville, NC. With students at these centers, Shaw University has become one of the largest HBCUs in the state of North Carolina.[9] Greenville, one of the fastest growing cities in the State of North Carolina, is located in Pitt County on the Tar River. ...

Study of World War II service of black veterans

Shaw University led a research study to investigate why no black veterans of WWII had been awarded the Medal of Honor. The study concluded that racial discrimination had contributed to the military's overlooking the contributions of black soldiers. The 272-page Shaw study recommended ten soldiers whose military records suggested they deserved the Medal of Honor. For other uses, see Medal of Honor (disambiguation). ...


In January 1995 the team’s findings were sent to the Department of Defense. In April 1996, the Pentagon agreed that seven of the ten soldiers should be awarded the Medal of Honor. All ten had been awarded other medals during the war years. President William Jefferson "Bill" Clinton awarded the Medals of Honor on January 13, 1997. The United States Department of Defense (DOD or DoD) is the federal department charged with coordinating and supervising all agencies and functions of the government relating directly to national security and the military. ...

The Pentagon’s decision in response to Shaw's study marked only the third time that the military re-evaluated military records to award the Medal of Honor. Only one of the seven nominees, 1st Lt. Vernon Baker of St. Maries, Idaho, was alive to receive his medal. Those who were awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously were: 1st Lt. Charles L. Thomas of Detroit; Pvt. George Watson of Birmingham, Alabama; Staff Sgt. Edward A. Carter Jr. of Los Angeles, California; 1st Lt. John R. Fox of Boston; Pfc. Willy F. James Jr. of Kansas City, Kansas; and Staff Sgt.
