As part of a national campaign to raise awareness about hunger and access to education, Denny’s has partnered with the National Council of Negro Women, Inc. (NCNW) and several national organizations to sponsor the 2019 educational tour to seven Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to kick off the seventh year of the Denny’s Hungry for Education Scholarship Program.
The following topics will be addressed at the 6 tour locations
THERE HAS BEEN A DEBATE OVER WHETHER HISTORICALLY BLACK COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES (HBCU) ARE RELEVANT.
The answer is emphatically yes! Yes, to the great minds that come from these institutions and then go on to lead in their fields of study. Yes, to the nurturing environment that comes from the caring faculty, staff, and administration. Yes, to the bonds that make friendships, business partners, and peers that last a lifetime. The existence of HBCU is as important now as ever.
MOST BLACK S.T.E.A.M. GRADUATES ATTEND HBCU.
The sciences, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics offer avenues to excellence. Students who attend HBCU grow academically and culturally and pass down these traditions from generation to generation. We need more doctors, more researchers, and more engineers. HBCU have proven their ability to deliver.
