Harnessing the legacy, community, and culture of HBCUs

Our 8 defining characteristics drive the foundation of our work. They are derived from over 3,000 hours of research conducted with students, faculty, and staff at our 9 partner institutions.

The future of Black education is now

HBCUv is targeting a Fall 2024 launch with 8 HBCUs. By 2030, we aspire to scale to all HBCUs along with select non-HBCUs.
