Past Presidents

Alabama A&M University (AAMU) has had eleven presidents and four interim presidents, ranging over a period from 1875 till today. A lot of things have changed since our first president, William Hooper Councill, was born into slavery and overcame it to become a teacher, lawyer, politician, newspaperman, civil rights leader and college founder. Like William Hooper Councill, each president has strived to rise to the challenges he or she faced in their time and to leave AAMU better than they found it.

 

We proudly present a gallery of our presidents.
