From HBCU to PhD: Social Capital & Student Success

Mar 11, 2021

2:30pm – 3:00pm CT

This talk will feature four experts who began their collegiate careers as students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). It will provide insight into how HBCUs are uniquely suited to be the center of a higher education ecosystem that produces Black scientists and scholars in both STEM and education. We will address how the diversity of thought and social capital cultivated at HBCUs produces professionals who are capable of navigating the highest levels of education and STEM.
