RALEIGH, N.C. – Shaw University wishes to invite the public to a series of Community Meetings to discuss its Campus Redevelopment plan, which it has named “The ShawU District.”  

The University held its initial community meeting on May 16, 2022, as a part of the rezoning process and promised to continue to facilitate additional opportunities to seek input from university stakeholders – including students, faculty, staff, alumni, friends and the surrounding community. 

As an HBCU and a significant landowner in downtown Raleigh, the changes that Shaw is requesting from the City will help transform its campus, as well as expand the footprint of downtown Raleigh.
