To Inform and Thereby Empower

News Curated Specifically for HBCUs

In addition to the issues faced by the higher education community at large, minority-serving institutions face unique challenges. Keeping abreast of administrative obstacles, proffered solutions, current events, and regulatory changes is a daunting task.


WPG founded the HBCU News newsletter to help simplify that task. Since October 2016, the newsletter has served as a “one-stop resource” for information on issues important to HBCUs. Every month we scour the web to uncover potential problems, pending deadlines, information and events of interest to the sector. We summarize it, categorize it and send it via email, so subscribers can read at their leisure. Topics covered include:

  • Higher education news and issues
  • Award and grant notices
  • Leadership changes
  • Higher education conferences, conventions, and webinars
  • Deadlines and compliance
  • Other regulatory deadlines and updates


The newsletter contains no advertising and is editorially independent. Subscriptions are offered at no cost to HBCU administrators, advocates, and trustees.

To ensure it is not blocked by your internet service provider, whitelist the news.hbcuatwpg-inc.com email address or add our contact information to your address book. You may unsubscribe at any time.
