Number 1 Mathematics and Statistics undergraduates in the nation!

Fort Valley State University ranks number 1 in the nation in Math and Statistics graduates! Diverse, a journal devoted to issues that matter most to HBCUs and Minority-Serving Institutions in higher education, has released their 2014 rankings for schools that produce minority graduates and not only did FVSU produce the greatest number of students with undergraduate degrees in Math and Statistics, we also ranked 8th in the nation in producing students with undergraduate degrees in Biological and Biomedical Sciences!

The ranking confirms the impression I’ve been forming since joining FVSU: we have some of the most talented and dedicated faculty. The ranking also speaks to the high quality of our students.

FVSU: potential realized!

The Math faculty are led by Dr. Dawit Aberra who also serves as the Chair of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science.

Dr. Aberra recently won a major NSF Targeted Infusion grant with fellow Math and Computer Science department faculty members Drs. Shadreck Chitsonga and Haixin Wang. They have been awarded $393,684 to develop a minor in Applied Statistics over the next three years.
