Join Blavity and the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) for our virtual summit, The State of the Black College Student: Exploring How Higher Education Can Support A Generation During COVID-19 on June 11, 2020 at 12pm PDT. We will have two panel discussions with the UNCF, HBCU administrators and student advocates.

The first panel “What Now? How to Help the Black Student During COVID-19” includes discussion around how higher education institutions can continue to support and provide resources to students while campuses and dorms are closed. The second panel “How to Engage Students and Prepare for What’s Next” will discuss how higher education institutions and their partners can successfully prepare students for their next semester back on campus and into the future.

We will also offer a unique virtual networking opportunity during the summit. All GA ticket proceeds will be donated to the UNCF to support their minority scholarship and outreach efforts. However, students can attend the summit complimentary, tickets are limited so register today!
