HBCUs Matter


Our goal is to use historical documents drawn from The 1619 Project and case studies of HBCUs to highlight the historical role HBCUs played in shaping the current American higher education system, the policies that govern this system, and modeling inclusive and effective teaching and leadership practice. This collaborative team effort will also provide space for knowledge sharing between K-12 and higher education educators about culturally affirming pedagogical approaches. Our classes of focus will consist of a higher education governance course at a Historically Black College and University (HBCU), an eighth-grade social studies course at a progressive independent co-educational school, and a graduate higher education leadership course at a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI).
