Posted by The Hope Center on October 19, 2021

The Hope Center for College, Community, and Justice will facilitate a national conversation with activists, journalists, and historians on racial justice and the efforts underway to ensure equity in higher education.

Participants will gain a greater understanding of financial wellness initiatives at Historically Black Colleges and Universities and at minority-serving institutions, recent developments in grants funding, and the efficacy of “wrap-around” approaches for addressing complex factors influencing college students’ basic needs.

This blue-ribbon panel will be moderated by Dr. Terrell Strayhorn,Virginia Union University Center for the Study of HBCUs. It will feature:

  • Danielle Douglas-Gabriel, The Washington Post
  • Dr. Adriel Hilton, Southern University
  • Dr. Donna Patterson, Delaware State University
  • Eric Stirgus, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
  • Dr. Everett Ward, Center for the Study of HBCUs
  • Timothy Welbeck, Esq., Temple University’s new Center for Anti-Racism

The Hope Center’s Student Leadership Advisory Council will open the question-and-answer session.

Date and Time: November 3, 2021, 3:00 PM

The webinar is offered through The Hope Center’s #RealCollege™ Virtual Journey series, a nine-month assessment of issues affecting students’ basic needs and their ability to complete college during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
