Executive Vice President at Stillman College Dr. Derrick Gilmore joins us in the C-CRETS chair today. Dr.Gilmore is driven by his mission to be an advocate for increasing the capacities of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) to support the development and preparation of socially conscious leaders. In today’s episode, we’ll talk about what HBCUs have to offer and why they’re important for developing black leaders. Then, we’ll provide some insightful receipts on HBCUs and C-CRETS on applying or supporting a HBCU. In addition, we’ll share C-CRETS on how corporate America can better support HBCUs.
