The NCCU Athletics Development Office in conjunction with the Division of Institutional Advancement is responsible for all NCCU Athletics fundraising initiatives. The Athletics Development Office shows individuals and organizations ways in which they can provide deserving young people with a quality education and first-class experience at NCCU.

NCCU Athletics is an emerging force at the Division-I FCS level. In just under three years as a full member of the Mid Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC), NCCU has captured conference championships in Men’s Basketball (2014) and Football (2014). Being a leader in scholarship, community, innovation and competition requires an incredible commitment from a committed group of supporters.

Athletics Operations are completely self-supported. All buildings and capital expenditures, including debt service, are funded by the department’s generated funds. Student fees provide small subsidy for Department of Athletics programming. Without philanthropic support, the NCCU Athletics would not be able to offer our young men and women an opportunity to earn a highly respected degree while competing for championships.

The mission of the Athletics Development office is to directly support the overall goals of the North Carolina Central University Department of Athletics by generating the necessary fiscal support for athletics scholarships, endowed and planned funds, and capital projects for student-athletes in all 14 varsity sports. It strives to embrace, educate and engage passionate Eagle fans and supporters within the community to foster pride and eagle excellence.
