12th Annual Black Brown & College Bound Summit

Black Brown & College Bound (BBCB) at Hillsborough Community College has emerged as one of the most preeminent national voices to address issues facing Black and Latino males enrolling in and completing college. The Summit has been successful in attracting some of the most prolific national speakers and scholars to address these challenges. A series of workshops based on themed tracks are also a major part of the Summit. College students and professionals engage in dialogue about critical issues, successful strategies and solutions. The goals of the summit remain to provide information about successful strategies, explore mentoring programs that enable the success of the young men and to provide the latest research of the methods higher education institutions can employ to increase access, persistence, and retention and graduation rates.
