As we begin the 3rd Annual HBCU Affordable Learning Solutions Summit, our focus will be on sharing the pioneering efforts of HBCU’s implementing their AL$ programs. Sharing lessons learned and enabling colleagues to incorporate exemplary practices into their own programs will help advance the HBCU communities goals. We will also share the innovations being explored and provide the social support for the campus leaders to be successful on their campus.
