HBCU Community Partnership

HBCU Community partnership

Strengthening business ties between Historically Black Colleges & Universities and the communities they serve

about The Partnership

The 3BC HBCU Community Partnership is a two-part national initiative. Part One strengthens connections between HBCUs and their local Black owned businesses. Part Two highlights and promotes current student and alumni owned businesses from each institution. We recognize the need for collaborative partnerships among various institutions that undergird African-American communities. Striving for Black economic empowerment, we form alliances between HBCU students, faculty, staff and businesses.
The essence of this partnership involves mobilizing students, faculty, and staff to seek and patronize external and internal Black owned businesses with purpose. In turn, these businesses pledge to sow back into the universities and communities they serve, in recognition of the rallied support they receive. 3BC will provide “Buy Black Blueprints,” curated collections of Black owned businesses local to each participating HBCU. We will showcase these collections on our platforms as guides to facilitate finding and patronizing these companies.

Working together, these groups will form a closed-circuit of constantly recycling dollars that concentrates resources in Black Communities.
