HBCU Exploratory Program The growing number of students unprepared for college & career success is putting America's future at risk — economically and socially.
Our nation's declining belief in the importance of a college education
— coupled with persistent socioeconomic inequities — make it difficult to reverse this trend.

launched America's first & only
national HBCU Exploratory Program.What is the HBCU Exploratory Program?
