ABOUT HBCU ALUM
Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU's) are institutions of higher learning that were originally established to educate and serve African-Americans during the period of segregation. Many were founded because most predominately white institutions (PWI's) prevented blacks and other minorities from enrolling simply based on the color of their skin.
Overcoming these challenges and creating our own schools, proud HBCU institutions have produced brilliant scholars, global influencers, world-class athletes, renowned musicians, leading educators, medical professionals, talented artists, innovative scientists, political heavyweights, media giants and a host of other outstanding leaders in their field. Proud HBCU alums have impacted every facet of society.
HBCU Alum LLC was founded in 2017 by Tennessee State University alum Terrence G. Caldwell. The platform spotlights these 100+ schools, students, alumni, traditions, and positive aspects of the Black College experience. Their mission has focused on providing news, resourceful information and content relative to the HBCU culture, with stories of achievements by students and alumni.
The brand also offers a variety of exclusive, original apparel, in which a portion of proceeds help support their annual HBCU-Bound scholarships. These merit-based financial awards hope to encourage talented high school students to consider HBCU’s as viable choices for higher education.
