Tom Joyner Launches Black College Initiative

HAMPTON, VA - Syndicated radio personality Tom Joyner has launched a new initiative to showcase more than 25 online degree programs at some of the nation's Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Tom Joyner Online Education, known as HBCUsOnline, will encourage students to apply to Hampton University, the 142-year-old university based in Hampton, VA, offering more than 22 online courses.

 

The other participating HBCU at launch is Texas Southern University, whose president is Dr. John M. Rudley. It's an 85-year-old institution best known for its Thurgood Marshall School of Law, Jesse H. Jones School of Business, its Barbara Jordan-Mickey Leland School of Public Affairs and its College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, which has produced 27% of all African-American pharmacists in the country.

"Everyone knows I'm passionate about my HBCUs and I'm working hard to find ways for my beloved Black Colleges to survive well into – and beyond - the 21st Century," said Tom Joyner. "HBCUsOnline is offering a convenient, easy–to-use way for students to complete their undergraduate degrees or better yet, get a graduate degree."
