MIAMI GARDENS, FL – Club 1964, Inc. invites HBCU Scholars, Leaders, and Advocates from across the nation to join them on Wednesday, March 21 through Friday, March 23, 2018, at the Illustrious Florida Memorial University for HBCU Symposium 2018; themed, “HBCU Tomorrow: Our impact in the 21st Century Beyond.”
Club 1964’s 2016 and 2017 Symposiums collectively gathered nearly 1,000 students, alumni, faculty, and staff from HBCUs and advocates from support organization and other institutions (like the Florida International University Black Student Union). In addition to those who attended from HBCUs like Claflin University (Orangeburg, SC), Jackson State University (Jackson, MS), and Howard University (Washington, D.C.), delegates from both the United States Department of Education White House Initiative on HBCUs and United Negro College Fund (UNCF) have attended each year.
Marquise M. McGriff, M.A., Convener of the Symposium, highlights:
“Considering the nation’s current climate and its impact on our Historically Black Colleges and Universities, it’s now more important than ever to discuss what this all means for us…. not just today, but tomorrow and beyond. That will be the focus point of our three days of discussion, learning, and fellowship in Lion Country – the state and fate of HBCUs. And we have some pretty accomplished and eager speakers sure to help drive the point home. I’m personally excited!”
