Shaw University Founded 1 865 by Henry Martin Tupper One Hundred Thirty Four Years of Dedicated Service Unforgettable, Unpredictable, Yet Attainable!" Dr. Talbert O. Shaw President 118 East South Street Raleigh, NC 27601 919-546-8300 Historical Perspective Tyler Hall On December 1,1 865. when Henry Martin Tupper undertook the organization of a theology class as a mean of teaching Freedmen to read and interpret the Bible, no one envisioned the end result of this being the establishment of a university. Rapid growth in the size of this class led to the purchase of land in 1 866 for the purpose of erecting a building to serve as both church and school. The school was named the "Raleigh Institute", and it functioned as such until 1870, when it was supplanted by the "Shaw Collegiate Institute". In 1875, it was incorporated as "Shaw University", which name it still bears, with the charter specifying that students were to be admitted without regard to race, creed, or sex. The school does not bear the name of its founder but of Elijah Shaw, the benefactor, who provided funds for the first building, Shaw Hall, erected in 1871. The coeducational emphasis of the institution was noted with the erection of the Estey Seminary (1873), the first Dormitory in the United States for "Black Women". Named for its primary benefactor, Jacob Estey, the building was used as a residence hall for women until 1968 and for men from 1968 to 1970. The building is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and now serves as a cultural center for the Raleigh community. The University graduated its first college class in 1878; its first class of medical doctors in 1886; awarded its first law degree in 1890, and its first pharmacy degree in 1893. In 1909, the Normal Department was supplanted by an Education Department, and in 1 9 1 0, the Preparatory Department became a four-year academy. The professional schools were closed in 19 1 8, but the college, theological department, and academy were continued, the latter existing until 1926. The theological department became a theological .seminary in 1933, and continued as part of the University until 1976, when it became an independent institution. Since 1921, Shaw has functioned primarily as a liberal arts college, although it has retained its name as a university. In 1931, the University elected its first Black president. Dr. William Stuart Nelson, who was president from 1931 to 1936. In 1963. the University elected its first president, who is an alumnus of the school. Dr. James E. Cheek. He remained president from December 1963 through June 1969. Dr. Talbert O. Shaw, the cunent President of Shaw University, has led the institution in its "Strides to Excellence" since 1987. President Shaw and Shaw University were the subject of a March 1994 cover article in The Chronicle of Higher Education, this country's most important journal on colleges and universities. The article focused on the University's recent history, remarking on the great strides it has made and the momentum it has developed. The Shaw University Crest 'The Dove, a Christian symbol, portrays the institution's commitment to a religious heritage, which started with the first class that eventually led to the establishment of this University. It was a class in theology taught by Dr. Henry Martin Tupper. December 1, 1865. The institution has remained an advocate of the Judeo-Christian faith. The Olive Branch emphasizes victory and the pursuit of excellence. The Torch (carries with it the idea of the light that shows the pathway to truth. The Human Figures represent all who have come to and gone from Shaw imbued with the spirit so cleariy enunciated in the life of the founder. The Stained Glass Pattern connotes ithe interrelation and interdependence of religion and learning proclaimed in the school motto: PRO CHRISTO ET HUMANITATE. Religion and learning con- ceixed as a joint venture so that character can grow with knowledge has been an [integral part of Shaw's tradition since its' founding in 1865.

Shaw Office of the President 2) President's Message "Strides to Excellence: Wlty Not The Best?" Dear Shawites: The production and publication of a yearbook captures the essence of a University and permits one to view from a pictoral perspective the vibrancy of its diverse constituency. Certainly the efforts to present the life and times of Shaw University 2000 represent, without question, another example of the excellence that can be achieved when administrators, faculty, staff, and students direct their energies in achieving specified and positive goals. This publication comes at a critical juncture in the history of our University. At this very moment, plans are undenvay to evaluate the entire University in preparation for reaffirmation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) in 2002. I am excited about this chance for us to see where we stand in reference to national accrediting standards. I have no doubt that we will do well. When one looks at our competitive curricula offerings, energized by a faculty of whom 65% hold terminal degrees, it is not by chance that on the annual exit evaluation done by graduating seniors in 1999, the University was given 96% rating as being highly effective in preparing them for the world of work in their related fields of study. Conversely, it is interesting to note that over 80% of entering smdents in 1999 rated the University as highly capable of meeting the academic challenges facing the higher education community. The Shaw family has every right to look forward to an even brighter fumre. The transformation of its physical facilities from no construction and renovation in 1983 to a new $13 million residence hall and education complex in 1 995 which gives ourjuniors and seniors the comfort level enjoyed at other institutions, and education majors a facility second to none for preparing them to teach in the "virtual" technological environment of the 21" century sends the message that this is a highly competitive and caring institution. When one looks at the fact that Shaw University has been designated as a Level III institution by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools at its annual meeting in Atlanta, Georgia on December 4-8, 1999, more impetus is given to our administrative motto of "Strides to Excellence: Why Not The Best?" Graduate degrees are being offered by the Shaw University Divinity School which has received full accreditation by the American Theological Society (ATS) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Plans are underway for the University to offer graduate degrees in Education and Business. These are exciting times for us! A committed Board of Trustees, a highly competent faculty, a smdent enrollment which has increased seventy-one percent, and over 11,000 alumni scattered throughout this country and many foreign countries suggest to me, as president, that the University is healthy and is ready to continue preparing smdents to be high quality leaders of America. I applaud the entire Shaw University family for documented excellence. Shaw Family — your President is still committed to "Strides to Excellence: Why Not The Best?"

Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy to the only wise God our Saviour be glory and majesty dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen Jude I: 24-25 |v * 139 In Memoriam In Memoriam Gone, But Not Forgotten Our Father knows what's best for us, So why should we complain- We always want the sunshine, But He knows there must be rain. We love the sound of laughter And the merriment of cheer. But our hearts would lose their tenderness [f we never shed a tear... Our Father tests us often With suffering and with sorrow, He tests us, not to punish us. But to help us meet tomorrow... For growing trees are strengthened When they withstand the storm, And the sharp cut of chisel aives the marble grace and form... God never hurts us needlessly. And he never wastes our pain. For every loss He sends to us Is followed by rich gain... And when we count the blessings That God has so freely sent. We will find no cause for murmuring And no time to lament... For Our Father loves His children And to Him all things are plain So He never sends us pleasure When the soul's deep need is pain... So whenever we are troubled. And when everything goes wrong, It is just God working in us, to make Our spirit strong. Helen Steiner Rice Joyce Ann Hester Keyes May 5, 1948- August 23, 1999 Oxford, North Carolina New Life (This poem was written based on Ann's conversation) God walked with me through the valley He cari'ied me over the mountain. He sustained me with His love. And refilled me from His fountain God was the source of my strength To endure the battle that I fought. He gave me the courage to go on And practice the faith that I was taught. God took me to higher heights In the spirit of His love. Now, I have flown away Just like the Heavenly dove. Don't weep too long for me For my soul has found eternal rest. I'm in the arms of my loving Jesus- The One who always knows best. - The Family 142 Antwan Eugene Merritt June 29, 1981- November 21, 1999 Portsmouth, Virginia Loving Antwan We knew you were special- from Day One. We didn't know that your"s was the song. That would quickly be sung. Your talents, your music, your smile, and your love Were there for all to see. You were excelling, we were rejoicing. Great things were to be. A precious beginning, that soon became an ending. There is so much to say. We pray for healing, with the knowledge. We'll see you in heaven some day. We love you. The Family 143 144 Leslie Maine Mobley April 11, 1975- December 23, 1998 Chicago, Illinois Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free. I'm following the path God laid for me. I took His hand when 1 heard Him call. I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day, to laugh, to love, to work or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way. I found the peace at the close of the day. If my parting has left a void. Then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss Ah, yes these things 1 too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow. 1 wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life's been full, I've savored much. Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief. Don't lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your hearts ands share with me. God wanted me now. He set me free. Dr. Arlease Gertrude S alley September 28, 1946- August 18, 1999 When Tomorrow Starts Without me When tomorrow starts without me. and I'm not here to see. If the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me. I wish so much you wouldn't cry the way you did today. While thinking of the many things we didn't get to say. I know how much you love me. as much as I love you. And each time you think of me, I know you'll miss me too. But when tomorrow starts without me. Please try to understand that an angel came And called my name and took me by the hand. And said my place was ready in heaven far above. And that I'd have to leave behind all those I dearly love. But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye. So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart. For every time you think of me. I'm right here in your heart. -Arlease- Marvin Anthony Strange Februaiy 18, 1972- December 31, 1998 Richmond, Virginia 146 Dear Marvin, M- is for the Marvin-lous times we had together A- Always there when I need you R- Realizing what we meant to each other V- The Vibrant spunk you added to my life I- The Internal lose that we shared N- Never giving up on mc and alwa\s being there Remembering the times that we shared together Hopmg our love would last forever You are my star that shined ever so bright The joy you brought me truly felt right Marvin, you were sent by the good Lord to me But just when we got close, the Lord set you free He knew I was strong as you were getting weak Giving me the will and the nerve to speak And as I speak my heart will say Dear Heavenly Father.

Thank you both for the love and patience you gave me during these last three years. I know it was hard for you both to understand me at times; so, I dedi- cate this degree to my living angels, for God gave me a star that has two shining points, and they are Tahara and Mason. Love Mama! The Path We Chose To Walk. . . "ijLs •:? •!? tt? f& From the start, someone believed you could accomplish great things. It was new in the beginning, but deteiTnination kept you going. When there were trials and tribulations, there was faith and determination to keep you strolling along. Through it all, we still walked the path. Of course there was work to be done. This is Shaw U! that great HBCU! Whai else would you expect? Through difficult classes, and exams there to understand and lend a helping hand was a friend, a study group or an instructor. We may have started out timid or shy and finished outspoken always having a reply. We leave our mark, however it may be, it's still you and me. Remember that friend you met along the way. Remember the fun that made you want to stay. Attain all you have learned and keep it to your dying day. What ever happens you can always say I walked that path I chose that day.
