Ingenuity students have an opportunity to meet with HBCUs
What is an HBCU?
An HBCU is any historically Black college or university that was established prior to 1964 that is nationally accredited and has a mission of educating Black Americans. Although HBCUs were originally founded to educate Black students, they serve students of all races.
Why choose an HBCU for your future?
HBCUs have a history of cultivating excellence within their students while promoting social justice and economic opportunity. Below are some facts about the rich histories of HBCUs:
Black Greek-letter sororities and fraternities were founded here and still exist today.
HBCUs employed figures from the Harlem Renaissance like artist Aaron Douglas and writer Arna Bontemps.
Jewish intellectuals were hired at HBCUs when they were forced to flee Nazi Germany.
Many Civil Rights leaders like Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks attended HBCUs.
Graduates of HBCUs include prestigious people such as Vice President Kamala Harris and Oprah Winfrey.
Many HBCUs encourage their graduates to focus on their greater purpose and make positive contributions to society.
