We’re partnering with universities and other non-profits on programs designed to bridge the cultural divide between historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and predominately White institutions (PWIs) and their student bodies.
University of Maryland – Bowie State Social Justice Alliance
This first-of-its-kind partnership between an HBCU and PWI is addressing critical social injustice issues facing campuses, communities and the nation by engaging students and the two university communities in difficult, yet constructive, conversations and to forge solutions and foster friendships across the cultural divides between the two institutions.
Building Bridges with Outward Bound
This unique partnership with Outward Bound brings together Army ROTC cadets from HBCUs and PWIs. Still in it’s pilot phase, ‘Building Bridges’ first activation connected cadets from Bowie State University and University of Maryland, College Park which — despite being only a few miles away from each other — have long seemed worlds apart.
40 ROTC students — 20 from Bowie State University and 20 from the University of Maryland — were brought together at Chesapeake Bay Outward Bound School base camp in Baltimore for a full day of team building exercises, shared challenges, and fun on a high ropes course.
Stay tuned for more as this partnership evolves.
