Webster Welcomes Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, Trine University to WINS Program
FAMU and Trine University become WINS members.

Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) and Trine University have joined the Webster International Network of Schools (WINS) program. Both institutions attended the WINS conference in Leiden this summer, and will be sending their students to study abroad at a number of Webster’s international campuses.

Founded in 1887, FAMU is a public, historically black university in Tallahassee, Florida. Known for its legacy of providing access to a high-quality, affordable education to many students who otherwise may never have the opportunity of earning a college degree, FAMU supports the administration of research activities that foster relevant research, intellectual discovery, creative problem solving and the dissemination of knowledge. 

It is the 5th largest historically black university in the United States by enrollment and the only public historically black university in Florida.  FAMU offers 56 bachelor's degrees, 29 master's degrees, two professional degrees and 12 doctoral degree programs; and is recognized in a number of areas including the 2015 National Science ranking as the #1 HBCU in the nation for total research and development expenditures.

For more than 130 years, Trine University has been producing graduates who have gone out and changed the world for the better through their knowledge, innovation and work.  With its main campus in Angola, Trine operates several satellite campuses across northern and central Indiana and has an additional campus in Centreville, Michigan. 

It is a private four-year, not-for-profit institution with programming in the arts and sciences, business, education and engineering. Trine is regularly recognized in U.S. News & World Report and Princeton Review, and offers a range of associate's degrees, bachelor's degrees, master's degrees and a doctorate in more than 35 major fields of study.
