Dr. Lloyd V. Hackley
The Lloyd V. Hackley endowed chair is named in honor of Dr. Lloyd “Vic” Hackley, Chancellor Emeritus at Fayetteville State University (FSU). During his tenure, FSU’s first doctoral program in Educational Leadership was established. Baccalaureate program offerings were increased to include 36 disciplines in the arts and sciences, business and economics, and education. The addition for the ultra-modern business and economics building and the new Health, Physical Education and Recreation Complex under-scored Dr. Hackley’s commitment to FSU’s continued expansion and growth. Chancellor Hackley strengthened FSU’s community outreach to at-risk children in the public schools, establishing numerous scholarship and tutoring/mentoring programs. FSU’s first major capital campaign was also completed during Dr. Hackley’s tenure, and enabled FSU to increase the number of privately funded student scholarships to over 200. On December 31, 1994, Dr. Hackley left his post at FSU to become president of the North Carolina Department of Community Colleges, the first African-American to lead the state’s system of 59 community colleges. In 2007, he returned to FSU to serve as interim chancellor.
