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.
