Lumina Foundation is partnering with five HBCUs in North Carolina to implement changes to remove institutional policy barriers and launch new or expand existing efforts to better support Black adult learners.
This convening is aimed at practitioners, policymakers, funders, and researchers interested in HBCU efforts to serve Black adults and how to best support Black adult learners.
At this virtual convening, we are excited to unveil the five grant recipients for our HBCU Adult Learner Initiative.
We also will:
- Share promising practices and approaches to serving Black adult learners
- Discuss how HBCUs can best serve Black adult learner subgroups like veterans, parents, and rural students
- Explore historical and contemporary issues regarding adult learners at HBCUs
