Jackson State University and the Historically Black Colleges
Jackson State University and the Historically Black Colleges and Universities Community Development Action Coalition (HBCU CDAC) join forces to present a regional conference focused on connecting HBCUs to the communities surrounding their campuses.
This unique regional conference will feature campus and community transformation projects; highlight how to build healthy communities; and will provide examples of public and private partnerships that work. The conference will also offer a forum to discuss strategies and share information and perspectives on how institutions of higher education can utilize their skills, intellectual capital and other resources to stabilize and strengthen our urban and rural communities. Finally, this conference will provide opportunities to network, and establish contacts and partnerships with potential funders and investors.
