The Annual Reunion for all past Cohort Fellows

The Annual Reunion will provide an opportunity for reflection on our work to date, building and supporting a community of practitioners, engaging in intentional conversations about the state of leadership at HBCUs, developing practical strategies for a wider and deeper impact on HBCUs and narrating the compelling story of the HBCU experience.

A unique and rarified community of HBCU practitioners

Cohort Fellows are encouraged to join us for Leadership Sessions and a Gala to acknowledge the leadership pioneers and stalwarts in the HBCU space and to celebrate our hard work.

Your Invitation

These sessions are for the returning fellows and will be conducted in June 6-9 2019 at Miles College. The instructors will be Presidents and practitioners in the HBCU community. We look forward to this historic gathering of men and women who are unapologetically committed to HBCUs and fearless in their personal agency to lead these institutions into the future.
