Connecting Students to HBCUs

Monday, November 21, 2022
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (EST)

Event Details

Historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) were established to serve Black students when educational opportunities weren’t easily accessible. The rich history of HBCUs is still relevant today as a producer of leaders throughout our country and the world. Attending an HBCU is more than a just viable postsecondary option for students; it’s a catalyst for a diverse set of thought leaders. Explore the purpose and establishment of HBCUs and the value they currently hold for students. Learn to support students in identifying the possibility of HBCUs as a postsecondary goal.

Learning Objectives:

After attending this session, you will be able to:
1. Discuss the history and establishment of HBCUs and the benefits they offer students today
2. Identify students who might benefit from exploring a HBCU as a postsecondary option and support them through the application process
3. Competently advise students in exploring the benefits of attending an HBCU during postsecondary planning sessions
4. Connect students to the HBCU that would be the best fit for their postsecondary educational and career goals
