Frequently Asked Questions

What does registration for the 2017 Black University summit cover?

  • The $8 registration fee covers transportation, housing & meals. This fee allows us to provide the most out of this convening space.

Why are Black PWI (Predominately/Historically White Institutions) students not eligible to attend?

  • This summit is for HBCU students to strategize about ways of protecting our tradition of leading social movements that have been under attack since our founding. We recognize the struggle of Black students at both institutions are similar, however, we know that the organizing approach for HBCUs are different than that of Black PWI students, we support them in their organizing efforts and know we must be apart of a United Front. 

Who is eligible to attend the summit?
