Oh, the Places You'll Go! : Exploring HBCUs

Help me give my students the opportunity to explore historically black colleges and universities!

My Students

As a teacher and advisor at my current school, I am inspired daily by the energy and resilience that I see in my students. Despite the challenges that they face, from inadequate transportation to negative narratives about the identities that they fit into, my students work hard to achieve academic and personal excellence. I believe that they deserve so much more than they get. Seeing what else is out there for them will help them make their vision for their future much clearer.

My goal is to show my students that they can literally go anywhere they want in this world if they work hard and are given the opportunity.

In March, I will be taking 10 male and female students on a 6-day tour of historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) to fulfill their postgraduate planning requirement. My students have been learning about the history and impact of HBCUs, particularly as it relates to educating generations of black professionals. We will visit Morehouse College, Spelman College, Clark University, Tuskegee University and Rust College. This college trip will be profoundly impactful. Please help support my amazing students!

My Project

The purpose of this trip is to expose students to the vast history and culture of African Americans in our education system. Students will visit historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in the southern states of Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi. The students will tour Morehouse College, Spelman College, Clark University, Tuskegee University, Stillman College, and Rust College. They will get the opportunity to meet college students and professors, and they will learn the importance of going to a university/college that genuinely values black history. Students will be learning about the HBCUs through independent research and networking. Students will learn the application requirements of each school. Ultimately, they will become more informed before making the very important decision of where to attend college.
