Tri-C, UNCF Team Up to Help African-American Students Realize Their Dreams
New partnership gives students the chance to explore opportunities at historically black colleges and universities
Cuyahoga Community College and the United Negro College Fund announced a partnership in January that will give the College’s African-American students the opportunity to learn more about historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).
The aim of the partnership is to encourage African-American students to enroll at HBCUs after graduating from Tri-C, furthering their education while staying connected to their roots.
In a recent segment on News 5 Cleveland, JaNice Marshall, Tri-C’s associate vice president for access and community engagement, said some students at the College aren’t even aware of what an HBCU is. The partnership between Tri-C and UNCF will serve to open doors that many students did not realize existed.
Interested students needing assistance with enrollment at an HBCU are encouraged to visit destinationhbcu.org.
