White House Initiative on HBCUs Unveil First Federal HBCU Competitiveness Strategy
Posted By: Will Moss on January 13, 2021 |
White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities (Initiative) is excited to unveil the first Federal HBCU Competitiveness Strategy
To successfully implement Executive Order 13779, The White House Initiative to Promote Excellence and Innovation at Historically Black Colleges and Universities, the White House Domestic Policy Council, the Initiative and federal agency partners convened to explore how the federal sector can best expand the overall impact of HBCUs on the principal missions of agencies.
This resulted in the first Federal HBCU Competitiveness Strategy (Strategy) to build the internal federal scaffolding required to safeguard HBCU success for years to come and to continuously strengthen their role in delivering on agency goals and objectives.
This Strategy fortifies the Initiative’s resolve to evolve the federal government from a collection of disparate efforts serving HBCUs to a cohesive and comprehensive government-wide plan that will improve conditions for HBCUs to compete for federal investments. Moreover, beyond guiding federal focus, actions, and investments, this Strategy serves as a valuable “North Star” for nonfederal, state, local, and private sector engagement on the national goal to support HBCU competitiveness
Importantly, this Strategy establishes the foundation, i.e., the floor, not the ceiling, of federal HBCU leadership.
It is our honor to present this Strategy to HBCUs and to federal and nonfederal public and private partners.
