Bethune-Cookman University

Bethune-Cookman University, or simply B-CC (as it was formerly called) or B-CU, is a private historically black university in Daytona Beach, Florida, United States.  Mary McLeod Bethune founded the Daytona Educational and Industrial Training School in 1904.[3] The school underwent several stages of growth and development through the years and in 1923, it merged with the Cookman Institute of Jacksonville, Florida and became a co-ed high school. A year later in 1924, it became affiliated with the Methodist Church. By 1931, the school had become a junior college.

 

The school became a four-year college in 1941 when the Florida Board of Education approved a 4-year baccalaureate program in Liberal Arts and Teacher Education. The name was changed to Bethune-Cookman College.

 

The academic program of the university is conducted within eight schools.

  • School of Arts & Humanities
  • School of Business
  • School of Education
  • School of General Studies
  • School of Graduate & Professional Studies
  • School of Nursing
  • School of Science, Engineering and Mathematics
  • School of Social Sciences

 

The Marching Wildcats are a 325-member unit that includes instrumentalists, the Sophisticats Flag Corps and the 14 Karat Gold dancers. B-CU has an intense in-state rivalry with Florida A&M University. Today, they meet annually in the Florida Classic.
