HBCU Recruiting:

How to Stand Out and Maximize Your Impact

Access the Recording

75% of University Recruiting teams specifically target Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs) for recruiting, and 94% say HBCUs are important to their current DEI strategy. However, UR leaders report difficulty maximizing the impact of their HBCU recruiting efforts.

One key challenge for UR teams is standing out on campus amidst intense competition.

Students see right through inauthentic engagement, which could be why some programs don't see a return on their efforts. At our webinar, we explored the three pillars of successful HBCU engagement that can help UR leaders enhance their HBCU strategy.

Plus, we shared case studies of strong employer-HBCU partnerships and heard from a panel of top UR leaders from Cummins, Dell, and Vanguard as they answered the most pressing HBCU recruiting questions!
