The HBCU Webinar Series

Virtual Engagement Events Region III

The purpose of the HBCU Webinar Series is to provide professional development intentionally designed for HBCU professionals and practitioners seeking to work at these institutions. The series include a variety of topics including, yet not limited to research, enrollment and student engagement. Dr. K will be joined with different practitioners and administrators that either work or conduct research on HBCUs.  

Dr. Kellie Dixon (Dr. K) currently serves as the NASPA Region III HBCU Division Chair. Additionally, Dr. K is the Director for Student Affairs Assessment and Staff Development at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. I am thankful for her leadership in coordination of this important webinar series.

The first historically Black college or universities (HBCU) was founded in 1837, Cheyney University in Pennsylvania, as a result of Blacks being denied the opportunity to purse a higher education at colleges during that time. Soon after, Lincoln University in Pennsylvania (1854) and Wilberforce University in Ohio (1856) were established. Soon after, more and more HBCUs were founded; however, it was in Title III of the Higher Education Act of 1965that defined HBCUs as institutions (established and accredited prior to 1964) of higher learning whose primary mission was the education of African Americans. 

HBCUs have an important contribution to higher education, especially in Region III where nearly 75% HBCU institutions are located. In recent years, Region III has made a commitment to better serve these important colleges and universities and continues to explore ways to center the work of professionals at HBCU institutions in our conversations as a region and within the field of Student Affairs. This webinar series is an important part of our commitment.

  • The Importance of Research at HBCUs – September 30 at 12pm (EST)
