Regional HBCU Leadership Summit

The newly launched Regional HBCU Leadership Summits are open to all (LGBTQ and ally) student leaders on campus, and assures that participating students build the skills and competencies to lead effectively through the intersections of race, religion, gender identity and expression, class and sexual orientation on campus and beyond. The summit also includes a daylong capacity building and LGBTQ sensitivity training for staff, faculty and administrators aimed at providing tools and resources to better support LGBTQ students on campus.

Identity HRC HBCU Leadership Summit

In launching this series of on-campus events, we have taken an aggressive step to expand the work that we have been doing for more than a decade through our National HBCU Leadership Summit for LGBTQ student leaders from HBCUs.
