WASHINGTON - Later this week, HBCU Presidents will gather in Atlanta to discuss what America needs to know about the role of HBCUs in the national college completion agenda.
From Thursday through Saturday the Southern Education Foundation (SEF) will be convening more than 100 HBCU presidents and trustees for its 2011 HBCU Governance and Institutional Effectiveness Seminar—along with its higher education experts and a select group of HBCU presidents for a media briefing to discuss the collective impact of HBCUs and how these institutions contribute to the national college completion agenda.
Dr. James T. Minor, Senior Program Officer/Director of Higher Education Programs at the Southern Education Foundation spoke with Black Radio Network today to discuss what is on the agenda and what the briefing hopes to accomplish:
HBCU presidents will also address how they are handling greater competition for students, an increasingly difficult fiscal environment, and reoccurring questions of relevance.
Expected to attend are representatives from Clark Atlanta University, Tougaloo College, Philander Smith College, North Carolina Central University, Kentucky State University, and Morgan State University.
