We talk with Mississippi Valley State University Advancement Vice President Alderman Faison about HBCU philanthropy, Southern University Athletic Director William Broussard joins us to talk SU's return to prominence as a sports program, and we discuss ageism in HBCU leadership.
We discuss the major issues that impact HBCU leadership, finances and enrollment. How do you create lasting solutions for problems with varying cultural and social elements? Is it possible for all historically black colleges to achieve and grow, or will some have to close for everyone to get the big picture?
Michigan Life Coach Q. August interviews Coordinator Andrea Reed of philanthropic organization My Sister's Keeper at Michigan State University. They discuss the value in philanthropy, how to serve, and why young professionals should make it their business to serve!
In last week's episode of Family Philanthropy Radio, we discussed what you need to know before you accept an offer to serve on the Board of Directors of your favorite non-profit. In this week's episode, we discuss how to avoid "Drive-By Philanthropy" in favor of establishing lasting and meaningful relationships with the non-profits you sponsor.
We talk with Prairie View A&M SGA President Priscilla Barbour about her successful campaign for the university to host a voting site, follow up with perspectives and outcomes from HBCU Week in Washington D.C., and finish with a look ahead to prominent presidential vacancies.
We'll chat with pro prospect Zach Pendleton about his time at Jackson State, the process of prepping for the pros and what he plans to do with his first check.
This week there was a woman who tweeted "A 4.0 at a HBCU is not equivalent to a 4.0 at a rigorous PWI. No shade being thrown, but that's the truth." Obviously alumnus of HBCUs have been bothered with this all week. It has sparked a debate that is somewhat perpetual.
Now one of the most persistant issues in the black community is perception of self worth. That is at the root of this debate. Is it assumed that HBCUs are inferior by the masses? But what about Morehouse, Spelman, Xavier, FAMU, Hampton, Norfolk State and others who are putting out stellar professionals annually? We'll dig into this subject today on #LFCRadio!
