Founded in 1867 as the Howard School for the education of African Americans, today FSU serves a growing student body of over 6,300 and ranks among the nation’s most diverse campus communities.

Livingstone College was originally founded along with Hood Seminary as Zion Wesley Institute by a group of A.M.E. Zion ministers for the purpose of training ministers in the Cabarrus County town of Concord, North Carolina in 1879. The College re-opened in Salisbury in 1882 with Dr. Price as President. Livingstone College is now a 4 year Undergraduate Institution accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

Since its inception, the College has had two principals and eighteen presidents, including six interim presidents. Among its possessions, the College owns 272 acres of land and the physical plant that currently consists of 35 brick buildings, seven of which are listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
