Community Colleges and HBCUs: Perhaps it is Time for a Partnership

Los Angeles Southwest College (LASC) may be one of the early community colleges to provide the kind of access to a diverse group of HBCU-panelists such as I saw last week at the LASC and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Transfer Fair. It remains to be seen whether information-sharing between HBCUs and two-year colleges such as LASC will become the norm. However, two-year college students interested in a rigorous, yet nurturing college, or university, experience would do well to include HBCUs on their list of institutions of higher learning.
