The Plug is Launching a Brand-New Newsletter

As the world of work is changing rapidly, it’s more important than ever to know about the Historically Black Colleges and Universities that are leading innovation in their respective fields. That’s why we created The Plug x HBCU Newsletter.

The first edition of this new weekly newsletter will launch Wednesday, October 13th and will provide exclusive access to videos, interviews and analysis about the HBCU innovation ecosystem and the future of work. The newsletter will be written by HBCU Innovation Reporter Mirtha Donastorg.

The first issues of The Plug x HBCU will cover the impact of corporations investing into HBCUs, strategies companies should be implementing with an eye towards minority workforce development, and how HBCUs will play a major role in the future of work.

By signing up now, you can stay on top of what is happening in American higher education as it relates to these institutions that are so much more than just schools. Sign up at
