SCHOOL OVERVIEW
Grambling State University, located in Grambling, Louisiana, is a historically black College and University founded in 1901. The University has been accredited by 13 accrediting associations and holds accreditations in all programs required by the Louisiana Board of Regents. Grambling State University is a member of the University of Louisiana System.

Grambling State University combines the academic strengths of a major university with the benefits of a small college, a combination that enables our students to grow and learn in a serene and positive environment. We offer more than 800 courses and 68 degree programs in five colleges, including an honors college, two professional schools, a graduate school, and a Division of Continuing Education. National and local employers recruit graduates from Grambling's excellent nursing, computer science, teacher education, and other programs.

In addition to being one of the country's top producers of African American graduates and the top producer of Computer Information Science grads in Louisiana, Grambling is the home of the internationally renowned Tiger Marching Band and the "winningest" coach in college football, the legendary football coach Eddie Robinson, Sr., whose tenure is memorialized in a campus museum, funded and operated by the State of Louisiana. Steeped in history, with a longstanding tradition of excellence, Grambling State University continues to emphasize the value and importance of each student, exemplified by our motto: Where Everybody Is Somebody.

Grambling State University President Dr. Frank Pogue:
"We are happy to be a part of this nine-institution degree offering. We have a number of Gramblinites who, for a variety of reasons, have gone on with their lives without completing their degrees. This online program will offer our university family members, and others, a chance to get a college degree with limited investment and limited time and without the hassle of putting life aside to attend classes on campus. We are also pleased to provide a human resources emphasis as a part of this effort, especially because HR is an important area in corporate and non-profit management, and one in great need of more diversity."
