Historically Black College and University (HBCU) Advisory Council
During the 2018 legislative session, the legislature approved ACT 236 to establish an advisory council to focus on Louisiana’s six Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), both public and private.
In partnership with the Board Regents, the Council will focus on ways to strengthen the capacity of HBCUs to provide the highest quality education, increase opportunities for HBCUs to participate in and benefit from state programs, and ensure that Louisiana has the highest proportion of college graduates from HBCUs in the country. The council shall:
- Advise the commissioner of higher education regarding methods to enhance the capabilities of HBCUs,
- Strengthen the capacity of HBCUs to participate in federal and state programs,
- Strengthen the capacity of HBCUs to fully participate in Louisiana’s workforce and economic development activities.
