A forum for the entire community, students and parents to speak with law enforcement, local leaders and policy makers in order to facilitate positive change.
Held on Historically Black College and University (HBCU) campuses and at other Predominately Black Institutions (PBI).
Bridging the gap between members of the community and representatives from business, education, government, healthcare, and law enforcement.
The Summits will be the foundation for policy reform, job opportunities, educational programs, and for providing access to institutional resources of funding and support.
In partnership with the National Association for Equal Opportunity in Higher Education (NAFEO)
Dr. Tanis King Starck is a psychologist and national thought leader in the area of cultural proficiency.
