From The HBCU Newsletter: Looking Ahead To 2022

Adapted from this week’s HBCU newsletter. Sign up NOW to make sure you get exclusive HBCU videos, news and analysis in your inbox every Wednesday morning.

As we wind down the year, I first want to say thank you to each and every one of you for subscribing, reading and supporting this newsletter.

Since joining The Plug in June, I’ve reported on everything from how select HBCUs graduate engineering students at a higher rate than flagships to an in-depth look at how a $25 million initiative created a pipeline for more Black cybersecurity professionals.


And since launching this newsletter in October, I’ve brought unique insights on how companies can partner with HBCUs during Homecoming, what recruiters need to know, and an analysis of decades of HBCU innovations through their patents and research.


Now, as we gear up for next year, I want to hear from you! Please fill out this quick three-minute survey so I can make sure this newsletter continues to be a helpful, informative resource.


Happy Holidays!
