Community Outreach/Civic Engagement
FAMU Made: From Mayor to Mainstreet, will bring together graduates of Florida A&M University who currently serve as mayors of small, mid-size and large cities across the nation. Mayors are leading the way at a time when politics have become divisive and require local leaders to find innovative ways to tackle America’s most difficult and pressing challenges. These men and women are strengthening our communities, building our economy and developing pathways for a brighter tomorrow.
HBCUs are the backbone of our nation. FAMU has distinguished itself from other institutions with its premier academic programs and set the foundation for individuals, like these Mayors to make their marks on the world. With this blueprint, it should come as no surprise that our nation currently has seven mayors whose leadership was honed in the tradition of Florida A&M University's axiom of, “Excellence with Caring.”
