We envision a future in which Black students can access equitable and inclusive spaces, where a like-minded group of peers celebrates and commemorates the rich culture and heritage of Black Americans.
There are 107 HBCU campuses throughout the United States which were established before the Civil Rights Act of 1964. These schools have graduated some of our most influential Black leaders such as W.E.B. Dubois (Fisk University), Toni Morrison (Howard University), Langston Hughes (Lincoln University), Kamala Harris (Howard), Spike Lee (Morehouse), and Gladys Knight (Shaw University).
With so many amazing schools to choose from, it might feel overwhelming to find the right fit. Enrolling with The BE Project will help students and families gain a deeper understanding of the benefits and learning environments at each school, so they can make an informed decision together.
At The BE Project, we walk students through their options for attendance at an HBCU, an educational choice that ensures the student:
● Receives a quality education
● Enters a unique learning atmosphere
● Experiences the power of HBCU alumni support
● Has access to a diverse group of students that share their cultural experiences
● Is provided with networking opportunities to fuel future career success
● Accelerates their economic mobility
● Accumulates the tools they need to BE a successful leader
Celebrate Black Excellence
As we take the journey together, we will empower students to seek out and apply life skills; encourage youth-positive values which build a better foundation for a successful future; and demonstrate the importance of discipline and personal responsibility in becoming an eventual leader.
