SAINT AUGUSTINE’S COLLEGE OFFICIALLY BECOMES SAINT AUGUSTINE’S UNIVERSITY “the change is not only aesthetic, but must also be a change in mindset. moving to the next level will require commitment from students, faculty and staff, and i am confident that we will rise to the challenge.” - President Dianne Boardley Suber The name change of Saint Augustine’s College to Saint Augustine’s University became official August 1, 2012. From Saint Augustine’s Normal School, to Saint Augustine’s College, Saint Augustine’s University is building upon a 145year legacy of academic excellence. Campus signage has been updated, major construction projects are in progress and the new branding package is complete. Cosmetic updates will continue throughout the academic year. University administrators have been hard at work preparing for not only the physical change, but also the shift in mentality that is required when any significant organizational change is implemented. “It’s more than just a name change” became a mantra of faculty and staff and drilled home the declaration that Saint Augustine’s University will not be business as usual.

“The expectation is that students will return to campus and know that something is different,” states President Dianne Boardley Suber. “The change is not only aesthetic, but must also be a change in mindset. Moving to the next level will require commitment from students, faculty and staff, and I am confident that we will rise to the challenge. We have the right people, in the right place and this is the right time.” Saint Augustine’s University will expand its programs for nontraditional students to include students seeking a four year degree that includes online courses and expanding off-site access to campus programs. The University has established Centers of Excellence that will serve as the anchor programs of a Saint Augustine’s University degree. The Center for Forensic Discovery (forensic science, forensic accounting, and forensic psychology) and the Center for

Applied Medical Sciences are two signature academic programs that are expected to enhance and expand students’ marketability for a global workforce. The third Center of Excellence will be the Center for Athletic Facilities and Sports Management. This center affords students a unique concentration in the operational and administration aspects in the world of professional, collegiate and leisure sports. Graduates from this center would have the competitive advantage to secure positions in the “front office.” The University will move toward offering its first master’s degree program as early as 2014. The Physician Assistant (PA) Master’s Degree Program will focus on training PAs for rural and other underserved communities.



SUBER APPOINTED TO ­HOMELAND ­SECURITY ­ACADEMIC ­ADVISORY ­COUNCIL U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano has appointed Saint Augustine’s University President Dianne Boardley Suber to the Homeland Security Academic Advisory Council (HSAAC). The new council, comprised of prominent university presidents and academic leaders, is charged with advising the Secretary and senior leadership at the Department on several key issues. “Dr. Suber’s extensive experience and expertise will make her a valuable asset to the Council,” said Secretary Napolitano. “I look forward to working with her on these critical issues.” The new council underscores the Department’s commitment to working with the academic community. In this noteworthy role, Suber will provide advice and recommendations on issues related to student and recent graduate recruitment; international students; academic research; campus and community resiliency, security and preparedness; and faculty exchanges.

UNIVERSITY ­CELEBRATES 145 YEARS WITH FOUNDERS WEEK OBSERVANCE The Saint Augustine’s University community celebrated 145 years of academic ­excellence during its annual Founders Week observance Jan. 22-29. This year’s celebration included a wreath-laying ceremony, Classy Hat and Bold Tie M ­ entoring Luncheon and gospel concert, among other events. A first for this event was the Community Service Day, through which the University partnered with The Boys and Girls Club of Raleigh, The YMCA and Habitat for Humanity. On campus, the Office of Student Activities hosted its Organ and Tissue Educational

Program and Campaign. The project was ­designed to create an education program that will raise awareness and promote the ­importance of organ and tissue donation. Other new events included a candle lighting ceremony and the Honors ­College convocation, during which the University recognized more than 450 students for outstanding academic achievement. Dr. Charlie Nelms, chancellor of North Carolina Central University, was the keynote speaker for convocation.

Just 10 years ago, Saint Augustine’s University didn’t have a football program. The program was cut in 1965 due to budget constraints. It was Suber who pushed to bring it back in 2002. The Board of Trustees asked Suber about athletics when she first came to the University. “It occurred to me that we didn’t have a ­football

Saint Augustine’s University’s innovative academic programs continue to position the institution among the leading colleges and universities in the nation. Some gems you may not know about include the right-of-way training program, the Confucius classroom and the new Film and Interactive Media major.



Acquiring right-of-way is a crucial part of any major project the Department of Transportation takes on. For the most part, the business has been difficult to break into, particularly for minorities. Saint ­Augustine’s University’s Right of Way Training Curriculum Program aims to give more people the information they need to land positions in the field.

The Confucius Classroom at Saint Augustine’s ­University is the first of its kind at a Historically Black University or University. It is one of three Confucius Classrooms under North Carolina State U ­ niversity’s Confucius Institute. The others are at Central C ­ arolina Community University in Sanford and Enloe High School in Raleigh.

The N.C. Department of Transportation (NCDOT) and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) awarded a $500,000 grant to the University to create the Right of Way (ROW) Training Curriculum P­ rogram — the first program of its kind in the state. “This relationship between Saint Augustine’s U ­ niversity and the North Carolina Department of ­Transportation affords us the ability to create an e­ nvironment where the University community can benefit and we can establish a model for others to follow,” Suber said. “This is the true meaning of partnership.” The ROW program is designed to: • increase the pool of potential ROW ­professionals; • increase the number of ROW internships within NCDOT and other transportation partners; and • increase the number of minorities in t­ ransportationrelated careers. The ROW program is an entry-level development program that offers a combination of courses that will develop students’ expertise and u­ nderstanding of acquiring real estate and right of way for ­transportation projects. Students enrolled in the one-year program can develop analytical and problem-solving skills, receive on-the-job and formal ­classroom ­training and acquire appropriate research skills for use within the NCDOT and FHWA. This partnership will support the advancement of minorities in the transportation industry. According to NCDOT Secretary Gene Conti, this program is a way to develop interest and attract and recruit minorities into transportation related fields. “This is a partnership we are very proud of,” Conti said. “We’ve set sail with a great deal of commitment as a way for students to enter this field.”

The Confucius Classroom, which was dedicated in August 2011, offers classes in Chinese language and culture for the campus community and the ­community at large. “The establishment of a Confucius Classroom at Saint Augustine’s University is in line with our i­nstitutional mission of preparing students to be competitive in an increasingly globalized society,” President Dianne Boardley Suber said. The Confucius Institute’s mission is to promote intercultural understanding between the U.S. and China, said Dr. Bailian Li, director of N.C. State’s Confucius Institute. Programs like the Confucius Institute support President Barack Obama’s initiative to send 100,000 U.S. students to China to study. Saint Augustine’s University’s Confucius Classroom is the culmination of a partnership between Saint ­Augustine’s University and N.C. State that began in 2009, which is when Saint Augustine’s University students began traveling to China along with N.C. State students to study at the Nanjing Normal ­University. Leaders at both schools said they are excited to be able to offer the same instruction to people locally. “This is an opportunity to bring China here to ­Raleigh – bringing the global to the local,” said Anna Lamm, deputy director for the Confucius Institute at N.C. State.


Saint Augustine’s University’s film program began in 1997 with an artist in residence and an ­adjunct f­aculty member, five majors, a few pieces of ­equipment and one linear editing machine. Under the leadership of Ellen Shepard, the program has since evolved to a full theatre and film major that is competitive with those at other historically black colleges and universities and mainstream institutions. The University is ready to take its growing film ­program to the next level. The institution is ­separating the theatre major and creating a new ­major called Film and Interactive Media. The ­combination of film and interactive media ­leverages media in new ways, creating innovations using the tools available now — Facebook, YouTube, ­Twitter, etc. Through the major, students will learn to move from passive consumers of media to active ­participants/ambassadors for their own brands or those of their clients. The Department of Film and Interactive Media was officially introduced in the fall. The interactive ­media major will be available beginning in 2015.



with raw talent. She makes up for it with an unwavering determination to outwork her opponent. “I like to be the best,” Tokarski said. “If someone is better than me, I will try to find a way to be just as good. If I work hard, I can beat talent when talent doesn’t work hard.” Her will to win rubbed off on her teammates during the championship match against Chowan. The Lady Falcons rallied for the five-set victory after being one point away from losing in the third set. Tokarski had 15 kills and 18 digs to earn most valuable player honors. Kathryn Tokarski has an inner drive which fuels her athletic success. A three-sport standout at Saint Augustine’s University, Tokarski led the Lady Falcons to the 2012 CIAA volleyball title with an upset victory over defending champion Chowan. Last spring, she claimed the CIAA women’s javelin individual crown in track and field. By her own admission, Tokarski is not oozing

Tokarski competed in softball and track and field in the spring of 2011. She was one of the Lady Falcons’ top softball hitters, leading the squad in hits and RBIs. In track and field, Tokarski took home the javelin title with a throw of 112-3. It was over eight feet more than the next competitor at the CIAA Championships.

Saint Augustine’s University’s volleyball team ended its amazing tournament run with a CIAA championship.

“To see the faces of the players and coaches after we won was unbelievable,” Lady Falcon Head Coach Nikki Bynum said.

The Lady Falcons rallied past two-time defending champ Chowan University on Nov. 6, 2011, at the Boo Williams Sportsplex for its 18th league crown in school history. It is the first championship since 2003 for the Lady Falcons, who earned the conference’s automatic bid to the NCAA Division II Tournament.

Bynum led the Lady Falcons (17-17 overall) to their first CIAA title in eight years in her first year as a University coach.

It was the second year in a row that St. Aug and Chowan met in the finals. Last year, Chowan eked out a 3-2 victory for the title. Sunday’s match also went five sets but it was the Lady Falcons who were victorious this time after trailing 0-2.

The Lady Falcons fought back to tie the match at 2-2 and force a fifth set. With a championship at stake, both teams battled to the wire, but the Lady Falcons were more resilient in the end. Four Lady Falcons were named to the alltournament team. They were Parris, Tokarski, Smith and Victoria Davis (Soph./San Diego, Calif.).

Tokarski, a human performance and wellness major, graduated in May 2012.



the four C's: Classroom, Character, Community and ­Competition. The U.S. Marines honored ­Bryant with the Excellence in Leadership Award for academic achievement, leadership and good character. A Springdale, Md., native, Bryant was named to three postseason allstar teams. She was selected to the Daktronics All-Atlantic Region first team, the All-CIAA team and the CIAA All-Tournament team. She is one of four Lady Falcons in school history to make the ­All-CIAA team three times.

Keyona Bryant goes down in school history as one of the best women’s basketball players ever at Saint Augustine’s University. Bryant capped a spectacular four-year career with an outstanding senior season. She won three postseason individual honors, highlighted by the CIAA player of the year award. She is one of three Lady Falcons to win the award since 1983. A 6-foot-1 center, Bryant also took home the Lowe’s Sr. CLASS Award, which is given to the top male and female senior b­ asketball student-athlete who best exemplifies ­excellence in the areas often referred to as

Bryant overcame a season-ending knee injury as a junior and a car accident as a senior to lead the CIAA in scoring with a 17.0 average. She also ranked third in the CIAA in rebounding with a 9.8 average. Bryant ended her career as the school’s modern career scoring leader with 1,601 points. In 2009, Bryant was chosen CIAA women’s basketball rookie of the year as a freshman. Bryant was part of a Lady Falcons’ team which was a conference leader in academics. For three consecutive years, the Lady Falcons earned the CIAA team highest grade point average award for women’s basketball.

Before the first game of the 2012 football season, Tyron Laughinghouse (Greenville, N.C.) of Saint Augustine’s University was already receiving preseason media attention.

for the spectacular catch. Laughinghouse, a 6-foot-3, 175-pound redshirt senior, also returned a punt for a score last season. His nine touchdowns led the Falcons.

According to, Laughinghouse is considered one of three players to watch in the CIAA this season. The website describes Laughinghouse as “a big play wide receiver who defenses will need to account for.” The blog writer expects Laughinghouse’s numbers to jump significantly from the 2011 season when he caught 27 passes for 556 yards and eight touchdowns while battling injury. Many of his touchdown receptions resulted from Laughinghouse outjumping defensive backs

An All-CIAA second team performer as a wide receiver and punt returner, Laughinghouse is an offensive and special teams threat for the Falcons. He ranked eighth in the CIAA in receiving yards (55.6 per game) and tied for sixth in scoring (5.4 points per game) in 2011.

UNIVERSITY UNDERGOES RENOVATIONS IN 2011 Delany Hall is a physical tribute to the Delany family and their many accomplishments on and off the Saint Augustine’s University campus. In January 2011, the University initiated the process of creating a new legacy for the historical building. Delany Hall will be the home of the newly instituted Honors College.

Renovations on the hall are underway; the construction project will take approximately 16 weeks to complete and will include new elevators, new external signage and amenities for state of the art classrooms. All honors classes and


S a i n



seminars will take place in Delany Hall. Furthermore, Delany Hall’s new sign is equipped with lighting for increased visibility.  “This is a big deal. [Delany Hall housing the Honors College] will provide the students space, a home if you will,” stated Dr. Sevealyn Smith, director of the Honors College. “It will be a place where they can come together, have discussions and build a community.” Additionally, Emery Gymnasium, the home court for the Falcon volleyball and

basketball programs was renovated, the floors in Emery Gymnasium were replaced with new flooring for better play and acoustics. Delany Hall and Emery Gymnasium renovations are only the beginning for the University’s campus. The best is yet to come for Saint Augustine’s University and the face of its prestigious campus.
