The Hauser Building was once the Student Union and has served as classroom and office space in the past. The building is named in honor of Dr. Charlie Brady Hauser, a distinguished scholar, civil rights activist, and human rights advocate. Dr. Hauser was a professor of education at WSSU for 21 years. After retiring from teaching, he served two terms in the North Carolina General Assembly.
The Hauser Building is currently vacant. Planned renovations are pending funding allocations.
