HBCUs have a tradition of providing affordable, culturally accessible higher education to minority and first-generation students as they support disadvantaged communities. The evolution of planning, partnerships, and pedagogy at HBCUs provides lessons for any stressed institution. United Negro College Fund and HBCU college leaders will examine enrollment, instruction, student success, historic preservation, and fundraising in a post-pandemic world and explore how we can transform these challenges into successes. Join the panel for an engaging discussion about physical, academic, financial, and operational strategies for reshaping and strengthening HBCUs and apply lessons learned to address diversity, equity, and inclusion at your institution.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Apply lessons learned from the challenges facing HBCUs to your institution's physical and financial planning.
  2. Compare different HBCU strategies for dealing with new models of learning, partnerships, and real estate.
  3. Translate HBCU economic and social impacts and their critical role in diversity, equity, and inclusion to initiatives at your institution.
  4. Discuss HBCU lessons on integrating facilities planning and improvements with strategic planning and an institution's educational mission.
