Ideation, Innovation, and Collaboration: The Future of HBCUs


In this episode, we discuss the Higher Education Leadership Foundation (H.E.L.F.) Summit, an out-of-the-box gathering on HBCU sustainability in the current social context, in which Diverse is serving as a media sponsor.

Tune in as co-founder Dr. Herman Felton and Dr. Elfred Pinkard discuss the importance of having a convening “for us, by us” to discuss the challenges currently facing HBCUs and their next chapter. Dr. Jamal Watson is the host.

Learn more about this HBCU-centric summit and the people supporting the talent and ability to ideate, innovate, and collaborate about their futures, assuring that the tomorrows of HBCUs are bright, vital, and sustainable.

KEY POINTS:

  • The vision and purpose behind the H.E.L.F. summit
  • What are the five major tracks that will be examined?
  • Why a follow-up is necessary - what’s next after the convening?
  • Who is the audience H.E.L.F. hopes to attract?
  • The potential if HBCUs harness all of their power together

QUOTABLES:

“This is about information sharing. How do we get folks who are doing amazing work at a small private institution to come into a circle of safety and have conversations with their peers who may be at a larger institution, who may be able to glean from one another and take that information back?”
