In conjunction with these clinics, the college will be offering incentives for students who get vaccinated:

  • Free campus vaccination clinics to be held Sept. 14-15

Stillman College students are learning firsthand the challenges k-12 teachers and students face in a virtual learning environment. Through the Greene County Peer Tutoring Program, Stillman students provide virtual after-school tutoring to students each week. The program launched in Spring 2021 and included 12-15 Stillman students who participated regularly. The program will continue later this month with a new group of Stillman mentors.
Eden Black, a senior biology and pre-med major from Mobile, had never tutored prior to joining the program in the spring, but she was motivated after learning of the high rate of poverty in Greene County.
“From my own experience, I understand how difficult [living in poverty] can be,” Black said, “and how hard it is to participate in things after school.”

  • Dr. Kevin Harris presenting Sept. 14
  • Stillman President Dr. Cynthia Warrick to speak Sept. 30
To address the gaps of Black Americans working in tech fields, HP is joining with Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Intel and Microsoft this month to present the inaugural HBCU Technology Conference. Stillman students can participate in this virtual conference FOR FREE. Limited spots are available -- register now.
