​​​THIS EVENT IS HYBRID​ - ALL REGISTRANTS WILL HAVE THE OPTION TO ATTEND IN PERSON OR ON ZOOM.​​Join us for a conversation with senior leaders from United Negro College Fund (UNCF) for a conversation on exciting trends in Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). According to Dr. Michael Lomax, President and CEO of UNCF and fall 2022 ​CPL Hauser Leader, we’re entering a transformative moment for HBCUs, one of possibility and growth. Covid-19 triggered a crisis at HBCUs where, like many other minority-serving institutions, schools scrambled for resources to support students and keep campus communities safe. In the years since, HBCUs have stabilized and initiated near-term efforts to rebuild endowments and expand community impact. What’s next could be the most rapid transformation of the higher ed landscape in a generation.
