ABOUT Fort Valley State University

The chains of physical slavery were broken in the United States by the Civil War, but the chains of mental slavery could only be broken through education. On November 6, 1895, an interracial group of 15 black men’ at least half of whom were former slaves’ and three white men, petitioned the Superior Court of Houston County, GA to legalize the creation of a school to ’promote the cause of mental and manual education in the state of Georgia,’ and the Fort Valley High and Industrial School was born. The group’s leader, John Wesley Davison, himself a child slave, was hired as its first principal after its incorporation on January 6, 1896. The school’s popularity was overwhelming, and enrollment pushed the boundaries of its capacity. FVSU is one of few colleges founded by former slaves, including founders Davison, Virgil Gideon Barnett, Peter Fann, Henry Lowman, Thomas McAfee, James Isaac Miller, Charlie H. Nixon, and Thomas W. Williams, who bonded with founders Stephen Elisha Bassett, Allen Cooper, Francis W. Gano, John Howard Hale, David Jones, J.R. Jones, D.L. Lawrence, Alonzo L. Nixon, and Lee O’Neal to create an enduring testament to the power of knowledge to overcome fear and mistrust.

The Office of Campus Life, part of the Division of Student Success, provides a student-centered educational environment that encourages all students to think critically and creatively. We also nurture students as they develop values and ethics, grow respect for human diversity, and make responsible choices as part of their healthy emotional, physical, and spiritual lifestyle. As part of the collegiate experience at FVSU, students have an opportunity to explore a variety of extracurricular activities which include student organizations, departmental associations, and leadership development.
