The White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities ( HBCUs) works to promote HBCU excellence, innovation, and sustainability. In 2014, the Initiative will recognize current HBCU students for their dedication to academics, leadership and civic engagement.

PURPOSE

To empower and directly engage with the next generation of leaders who will graduate from HBCUs and go on to make meaningful contributions to society.

GOALS

  • Identify and formally commend current HBCU students who are simultaneously achieving their educational goals and making a difference in their community.
  • Raise awareness about the Initiative as a networking resource by sharing promising and proven practices that support opportunities for all young people to achieve their educational and career potential.

Over the course of the year (February 2014- January 2015), HBCU All-Star Students will:

  • Serve as ambassadors of the Initiative by leveraging their social media presence and community-based organization relationships to promote the value of education;
  • Have their individual work featured on the Initiative’s website;
  • Be invited to participate in regional events, where appropriate;
  • Network with other scholars to showcase individual and/or collective talent across the HBCU community; and
  • Join quarterly webchats with Deputy Director, Ivory Toldson and other professionals.
