UIDP Webinar Recording: HBCU Research Engagement: Topics, Stats, and Facts

There are many efforts underway across the partnership continuum for industry to engage with historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs). Over the past two years, UIDP has worked to build and strengthen opportunities for industry to partner with HBCUs for sponsored research and related programs–activities that offer industry downstream benefits in talent development as well.  

This webinar offered an analysis of research topics that are most prolific at HBCUs, shared practical takeaways learned from the March 2022 partnering conference, Mission in Motion, and discussed goals and topics that will be explored at HBCU Engage 2023, set for April 18-19 in Nashville and designed to help institutions build on their research initiatives.
