WILBERFORCE, OH – Central State University, a historically black university located in Wilberforce, Ohio, will welcome nearly 840 new students this fall semester, the largest since 2011.

According to a press release from the university, new first-time freshmen, transfer students and readmits are expected to help the University surpass last year’s total enrollment. In addition, new student enrollment has exceeded the University’s original new student target of 800. Total enrollment numbers will be confirmed at the end of the month.

Part of the growth can be attributed to an intentional focus on increasing cultural diversity through international recruitment. This semester, students from The Bahamas will dominate the international community on campus. Two years, ago, Central State entered into an agreement with The Bahamas Ministry of Education to provide scholarships for Bahamian students. Because of the academic success of those students and CSU’s affordability, the Bahamian government tripled the number of sponsored students. These students will be among the students from more than eight other international countries who have attended Central State.

“Over the past two years we have made a concerted effort to ensure that our partnership with The Bahamas Ministry of Education is one that yields successful outcomes,” said Dr. Stephanie Krah, Vice President for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management. “CSU is an institution that lives its mission of fostering academic excellence within a nurturing environment. Student success is the outcomes.”

The campus is busy this week as new students engage in activities designed to introduce them to a collegiate environment. New student orientation or “Pirate Week,” concludes on Sunday, August 13, with the culminating Candlelight Ceremony, an event that symbolizes the transformative journey of incoming freshmen or “Pirates” to “CSU Marauders.” Classes begin Monday, August 14.

This year, Central State University, was awarded the 2017 HBCU of the Year by the HBCU Digest and presented by the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, is the fifth most affordable four-year institution in the nation for out-of-state students. Last fall, 45 percent of the total enrollment was from out-of-state. “This speaks to the brand and the image of the University outside of Ohio.” said Dr. Krah. “These students and their families understand CSU’s value proposition. Our goal, is to connect these students with internships and career opportunities in Ohio, which will lead to residency and the promotion of Ohio’s workforce.”

HBCU Campaign Fund (HCF) president Demetrius Johnson Jr., visited Central State University this past January and was extremely impressed with the campus and the current work of the University, as the only public land-grant HBCU in Ohio.

As the countdown begins to the most controversy moment of the year, the HBCU Campaign Fund (HCF) organization stands in support of Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos delivering the commencement address at Bethune-Cookman University on Wednesday, May 10th at 12 noon.

The 11th U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.

There are a mass number of disagreement towards the commencement address speaker. Conversely,  I came to an understanding of everyone’s reasoning. Notwithstanding, neither do I agree with the outroar of individual’s reaction towards DeVos nor President Jackson and his administration decision. I also do not agree with the comparison of DeVos and Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune. What Dr. Bethune left is her legacy of faith, scholarship, and service and that’s what exactly should be accountable during this exhilarating moment of excellence. As you come to your milestone of celebrating an accomplishment that is another tremendous step in life, DeVos as a speaker should be the one less thing in mind at that given time.

Yes, DeVos said historically black colleges and universities were pioneers of school choice but students, alumni, and supporters know exactly what the historic background of HBCU’s are and what they stand for as of today. HBCU’s current relied on the federal support such as from the Department of Education either you like or not and they also are institutions that are open to all races no matter of the founding background. Accordingly, to what Dr. Jackson stated, Dr. Bethune relied on support from leaders in order to get the institution off the ground regarding their feelings of what type of institution it is. As we move through the millennial that federal support is more crucial than ever, it’s very vital that HBCU leaders continue to invite political leaders to their institution’s state and federal. Even Dr. Bethune once worked in federal as an advisor on minority affairs in the Roosevelt Administration, was given a chance to organize two national conferences on the problems of black Americans.

Leaving us her last will & testament, she left us racial dignity, stating that we must learn to also share and mix with men (and women too). We must make an effort to be less race conscious of individual and human values. Consequently, I take it in as to be mindful of what DeVos said regarding HBCU’s but continue to grow and learn from it as well as relying on the institutional support from these individuals. If they are uneducated regarding an HBCU, let’s educate and school them, lead them in the correct direction of what an HBCU serves in academic excellence.

As referring to life lessons, God forgives and gives his children second chances repeatedly and DeVos deserves a second chance in stepping on an HBCU campus and serving as commencement speaker at Bethune-Cookman University. You never know, what she has in store as a speech and may even be regretful of her comment towards HBCU’s. Enter to learn, Depart to serve is a motto of what Dr. Bethune founded more than 145 years ago, which she left the responsibility to young people that are to not be discouraged from aspiring toward greatness, for they are to be the leaders of tomorrow.

Expand beyond your horizons. Let this be the most forgettable commencement no matter the outcome of DeVos speech, walk across the stage, grasp your degree with eagerness and step into the world with faith, dignity, ambition and responsibility as career seekers of a high-skilled paying jobs. Do not forget to support your HBCU forevermore and to give, give, give back in support. Nevertheless, for future college-seekers DeVos as a speaker should not take a toll on your admission decision to BCU. Continue your dream and the legacy because the legacy Dr. Bethune relied on faith and without faith, nothing is possible. With it, nothing is impossible.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Friday, January 13, 2017, five (5) historically black colleges and universities were honored as an White House healthy campus by President Barack Obama. As part of Obama’s Administration’s ongoing efforts to reach the remaining uninsured, the White House launched the Healthy Campus Challenge in September, hoping to engage college and university campuses in enrollment efforts.

Thanks to the Affordable Care Act 20, 20 million more Americans have gained coverage, and the nation’s uninsured rate now stands at its lowest level ever. Access to affordable, quality health care is critically important for young people as they reach adulthood and enter the job market. It gives them peace of mind that allows them to focus on their studies, helps them stay healthy as they join the workforce, and is vital to building a strong economy and a strong middle class.

More than 350 campuses from all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico participated in the Challenge and carried out some enrollment activities, with nearly 100 campuses completing all the criteria. Out of that 100 campuses, 5 HBCU campuses made the list.

  • Bethune-Cookman University (Daytona Beach, FL)
  • Bowie State University (Bowie, MD)
  • Florida Memorial University (Miami Gardens, FL)
  • Livingstone College (Salisbury, NC)
  • Xavier University of Louisiana (New Orleans, LA)

This past Friday (Jan. 13), nearly 60 leaders of those campuses attended the Healthy Campus Challenge Day at the White House, which was presided by First Lady Michelle Obama.

Congratulations to the following HBCU campuses who were designated as an White House Healthy Campus and we hope that your success continues in remaining to keeping HBCU students healthy and insured for the future years to come!
