2020 HBCU Hidden Figure
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated was founded on the campus of Howard University in Washington, DC – a historically black university. Support of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) remains a priority as Alpha Kappa Alpha continues its focus on education with an emphasis on HBCUs.
HBCUs are a jewel in the cap of American higher education particularly among families of color. The contributions these schools make to the fabric of American life are indisputable.
HBCU 4 Life helps youth of color navigate the college journey. We explore self-knowledge, the HBCU experience, and college & career choice. Our student-centered workshops are in partnership with high schools across Clark County School District.
Shaping the future
HBCUs enroll upwards of 370,000 students and graduate a significant share of all African Americans receiving degrees. Black colleges and universities contribute to the continuing rise of black intellectuals, professionals, and creative artists throughout American society.
