This week happens to be the 2021 HBCU Conference Week and we are glad to be making this short announcement.
Our education research and evaluation work with HBCUs spans over 14 years when we first teamed up with national-level experts and education consultants to assess the network of UNCF-supported colleges and universities in 2007-2009 which was funded by the Mellon Foundation (GA). What a fantastic learning experience!
Since then, we have continued to partner, collaborate, and contribute the works of several public and private-HBCUs in their pursuit to educating African American students in the U.S. with support of grants from the National Science Foundation, U.S. Department of Education, NASA, and private foundations.
Continuing our mission to work in the K-20 systems across the nation with timely, meaningful, and useful evaluation work using data, we will be working on four new NSF-funded Targeted Infusion Projects (TIP) under the HBCU-UP program with: Albany State University (GA, two grants), Bowie State University (MD), Hinds Community College-Utica Campus (MS), Jackson State University (MS), and North Carolina A&T University (NC).
We are very proud to support these four HBCUs as their program evaluators and are looking forward to an engaging and enriching experience in the years to come.
