RESOURCE SPOTLIGHT: FREE VIRTUAL HBCU TOURS
Are you familiar with HBCUs?

HBCU stands for “​Historically Black Colleges & Universities​,” institutions of higher learning founded before 1964. 
Their primary mission was originally to provide a safe space where African Americans could receive an 
education following the Civil War, though students of any race or ethnicity may attend an HBCU. There are currently 103 HBCUs in America—half public, half private institutions. 

The Social Engineering Project is hosting a 4 part webinar series which allows students to explore different HBCUs and connect virtually.

Check out the PDF of the flyer here for full dates and times and be sure to register if you are interested in attending and learning more!
