New Program Seeks to Enhance the International Focus at Seven Historically Black Universities

The American Council on Education in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Education has announced a new program to enhance the international focus at seven historically black colleges and universities. Under the Creating Global Citizens: Exploring Internationalization at HBCUs project, program directors will seek to inject a curriculum at these institutions that deals with international issues. The project will also develop partnerships between the HBCUs and foreign educational institutions. The two-year program is funded by a $357,976 grant from the U.S. Department of Education and an American Council on Education grant of $191,479.

The seven participating HBCUs are Dillard University, Howard University, Lincoln University of Missouri, North Carolina A&T State University, Savannah State University, Tuskegee University, and Virginia State University.
