Transcript of Historically Black Colleges and Universities Closing

Thank You!
-Historically Black Colleges and University's (HBCU's) were founded after the Civil War

-There are 106 HBCU's in the US

-Qualifications of a HBCU? (Demby, G., 2013)

-Students they serve?

-11 HBCU's have closed their door permanently.

Class Activity
With HBCU's struggling to get donations from their alumni/community, who are very vocal about their pride of going to said HBCU, how do you think this could be resolved?

If you are the Director of a Call Center where you are raising money for the University, how do you devise a plan to get people to donate?

Please give me two ideas you have to help raise money through a call center and personal relations you create with alumni and community members.
-Tax Payers
-HBCU Alumni
-HBCU Current Students
-HBCU Faculty and Staff
-HBCU Donors
-For-Profit Education Institutions
-Potential Students?
Stakeholders Response
-Politicians are debating "Bail Out Money" (Jacobs, P., 2015)

-Howard Alumni Donation Rate is up from 2008 to 2012 (Demby, J., 2013)

-HBCU Faculty and Staff are organizing fundraisers (Mason, K., 2015)

-Current Students are exposing the impact of HBCU's (Mason, K., 2015)

-Florida A&M and Paul Quinn College mixing with University of Phoenix? (Blumenstyk, G., 2015)
