While it may appear that Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s) do not have issues of domestic violence on their campuses they in fact do. There are many barriers that women of color may experience in seeking assistance. In 2011 U.S. Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights published The Dear College letter. This set the guidelines for addressing the sexual harassment of students, including sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. The Department of Justice Office of Violence Against has grants available to help assist colleges and universities to meet the mandates of the Dear Colleague letter. Tonight we will discuss how HBCU’s are addressing the issue of domestic violence and the resources for the survivor.
This week show we talk about how we can help our Historically Black Colleges and Universities. We must help our ancestors who helped us and help the ones that are trying now to help us. But they can help themselves as well we are one. And questions please call in our guest line at (347) 327-9705
HBCUs offer culture, a rich history and rigorous academic programs. Most importantly, they prepare students for leadership and life after graduation. There are 100 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) across the nation and nine percent of all African American college students attend HBCUs. In 1965, in Title III of the Higher Education Act of 1965, Congress officially defined an HBCU as a school of higher learning whose principal mission was and is the education of African Americans and was accredited and established before 1964.
All HBCUs play a critical role in the American system of higher education. For most of America’s history, African Americans seeking a college education could only get it from an HBCU. firstname.lastname@example.org call in 661-467-2407
Dr. Jahi Issa, Professor of African/African American Studies at Delaware State University, will discuss the systematic removal of African American administrators,faculty and students at historically black colleges and universities in the Age of Obama.
The annual PUSH Excel HBCU Tour held during Spring Break every year always presents exciting opportunities for high school students, many of whom are offered scholarships and are accepted on the spot at some of the major Historically Black Colleges and Universities. This year we will hear the inspiring stories from several of the students who attended the recent college tour and were accepted into college during the tour. The event is a life changing experience, and encourages parents to prepare their children for higher education by exposing them to the unlimited possibilities available for those who desire success in life.
One of the partners in the recently announced AIR.U initiative to build wireless broadband networks in college towns is the United Negro College Fund. UNCF plans to leverage this opportunity to put historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) on better footing with other colleges by building strong broadband infrastructure.
Robert Rucker, VP of Planning, Budgets and Information Technology for UNCF, discusses plans to help AIR.U create guidelines and broadband pilot programs for the 500 colleges nationwide represented by the initiative. These plans include using unlicensed white space to bring wireless broadband to colleges and the communities surrounding them.
Mr. Rucker also describes:
the effectiveness of colleges as hubs of broadband innovation programs that are helping more minorities become computer literate and move online creative uses of broadband technology originating in black communities how Federal broadband policy and funding programs can raise all boats
The greatest value of attending college, in addition to mastering information that can eventually evolve into a tangible skill, is learning that a vision and an accomplishment are seperated by hard work. However, one need not have attended college to know any of this. Ancestor El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz ( Malcolm X ) didn't pass the eight grade, yet he never lost a debate, even in the midst of Harvard scholars with Ph.Ds. Therefore, the question must be asked as to whether or not the faculty and / or staff of Historically Black Colleges and Universities really have their students best interests in mind. Although President Barack Obama gave many millions of dollars to HBCUs, not much changed in terms of students collectively creating connections and infrastructure AMONG THEMSELVES. These two elements are the precursors of mass employment that other groups of people utilize in order to live secure and productive lives. If you look at any HBCU Social Medium, however, HBCU football rivalries and homecoming queen stuff is the talk that gets the most coverage. THE GREATEST CREATORS OF BLACK EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES SHOULD BE THE HISTORICALLY BLACK COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES, but they are far from being that. Are these colleges being guided by competent people who are just as special as the students who choose to attend them ? The rapidly emerging economies within the African Continent are out of sight, out of mind, and NEVER discussed. And we wonder why unemployment rates of Black people have always been disproportionately higher than that of any other group of people ? So the question of whether or not people who influence HBCU affairs truthfully hold the best interests of the students as priority number one. When it comes to high unemployment within our communities, we have nobody to blame outside of ourselves.

If 2014 was the year of the LGBT athlete on Outsports, 2015 is becoming the year of the Christian college. Just this past week two stories have developed that again put the policies and practices of religious institutions in the spotlight. Hours after dismissing a priest for supporting the NOH8 campaign, Seton Hall signed openly gay basketball player Derrick Gordon, leaving many to wonder about double standards and how Gordon will be treated by students, faculty and administrators at the devout Christian college.
While the policy has been around for at least a year, the student-athlete handbook at LeTourneau University has come under the spotlight. The handbook bans gay athletes from dating, and it prohibits any athlete from publicly supporting same-sex marriage.
All the while, these colleges are allowed to reap the benefits and rewards of membership in the NCAA, which claims to support diversity and inclusion.
