History North Carolina Central University (NCCU) is a four-year, state-supported, coed, liberal arts institution founded in 1910 as the National Religious Training School and Chautaugua. The school was sold and reorganized in 1915, becoming the National Training School. Originally chartered as a private school, it became the nationís first state-supported, black, liberal arts college in 1923, changing its name to Durham State Normal School. Three years later, the school was named North Carolina College for Negroes. In 1939, graduate and professional programs began to be established. NCCU became one of the sixteen member institutions of the North Carolina system in 1972 and is now subject to the control of its board of governors. North Carolina Central holds to its mission to develop character and to provide sound academic training for real service to the nation. Its programs give students a strong background in general Western culture and African-American culture. The 103-acre campus houses fifty-six buildings of modern and modified Georgian brick.
