Historically Black Colleges and University’s need specific support

Historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) are facing increasing pressure to improve effectiveness and efficiency, while operating in a transparent and sustainable manner. Our team has completed more work for HBCUs than many other consulting firms, with experience that dates back more than 25 years.

We’ve examined the academic operations at some universities, administrative operations at others, and even worked with HBCU governing boards. From housing and feasibility studies for new academic programs, to whole organization reviews and strategic plans, our team has partnered with these unique institutions to help them stay focused on the future state of
success.

HBCUs: A Unique Opportunity Within a Community

According to the UNCF website, HBCUs make up only three percent of the country’s colleges and universities, but they enroll 10% of all African American students and produce almost 20% of all African American graduates. These institutions help address and support Black students from a social and emotional perspective, meaning their impact within the larger community is critical. We’re here to support that mission – both on and off-campus.
