The Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Conference is a two-day professional development event specifically designed for chief academic officers, deans or directors of admission, recruitment or enrollment management, and directors of financial aid. Join us at the 30th annual HBCU Conference to discuss new solutions, share best practices, and collaborate with colleagues to increase efficiencies in managing your enrollment.


Form new connections and collaborate with colleagues from HBCUs from across the country working to primarily educate African American students. 


The Academic Affairs sessions will focus on: online education, minimizing degree completion time, curriculum that is career ready, accelerated degree programs and reducing graduation debt load. The Enrollment sessions will focus on: pipeline movement to graduation, understanding capacity and delivering service, non-traditional enrollment management and handling Title IX and IV issues. The Financial Aid sessions will focus on: satisfactory academic progress (early alert and mid-year), prior-prior year FAFSA completion and verification and faculty support (tenured and adjunct).


Come and explore the great things that happen when education professionals work together to increase access and opportunity for African American students.
