General Discussion Forum / Bernie Sanders Speaks at Bennett College
« on: September 21, 2019, 03:59:19 AM »
Sanders shared the microphone with several allies and surrogates who joined him on stage for what was billed as a town hall. Among his guests were author, speaker and Harvard University professor Cornel West; Ben & Jerry's co-founder Ben Cohen (whom Sanders introduced as the future Secretary of Ice Cream) and rap star Michael Render, better known by his stage name Killer Mike.


Actor Danny Glover encouraged the crowd to hold Sanders' feet to the fire after he's elected. First, though, they need to get him elected.

"If we can imagine it, if we can dream it," Glover said, "we can make it real."

'Enormous potential and opportunity’: N.C. A&T’s chancellor looks ahead to a new academic year

Martin said A&T expects to start the fall semester with about 12,450 students, a record. That’s about 2 percent more than last year. The university wants to have 14,000 students on campus by 2023.

A&T is about a million dollars away from meeting its fundraising goal of $85 million that it announced in November.

The campaign will continue for another year and a half. Martin said the university is on pace to raise at least $100 million by the end of 2020 for scholarships, academic programs, faculty and campus facilities.

New programs
A&T has started or will soon start three new academic programs, including a new doctoral program in social work that it shares with UNCG. Martin said other new degree programs are in the works, though he didn’t share details Wednesday.

If we don't have a solution, keep your opinions to yourself. Every opinion is not valid. This article adds nothing to the discussion of HBCUs.

HBCUs a pipeline to the major leagues

Donald Hunt Tribune Staff Writer

Most sports fans are familiar with the outstanding football and basketball programs at historically Black colleges and universities, but many baseball players from Black colleges have also gone on to the majors.

Covington, an undrafted prospect out of Tenessee State, has risen as one of the most reliable 3-and-D players in the league. In 2018, he was selected into the NBA All-Defensive First Team.

University Of Alaska Readies For Budget Slash: 'We May Likely Never Recover'

The University of Alaska System is bracing for a 41% cut to its budget, after Gov. Mike Dunleavy vetoed a $130 million line item in the state's budget.

The announcement came last Friday, three days before the fiscal year began on July 1. Dunleavy vetoed roughly $400 million items in the budget, with education receiving the largest cut.

The university system will lose $130 million from the veto — on top of an additional $5 million previously agreed upon by legislators. The governor's 182 line-item cuts also included Medicaid, senior benefit payments and homelessness services.

Saint Paul’s College property sold (Dec 2017)

The former Saint Paul’s College might one day welcome students again to its campus in Brunswick County — but possibly under a different name.

Xinhua Education Investment Corp., a Chinese-backed group, purchased the remaining property of the historically black college on Nov. 27, according to county court records.

The group secured about 130 acres and about 30 campus buildings in Lawrenceville, the county seat, the records show.

“Challenge by choice” was the motto of Saint Paul’s College, which closed in 2013 because of financial problems and declining student enrollment.

Now the citizens of Lawrenceville are living up to that motto — by taking up the challenge of collecting and preserving artifacts documenting the 125-year history of the historically black college.

Lawrenceville residents and other supporters of Saint Paul’s College have opened a museum to showcase documents and memorabilia, including an original copy of “Adventure in Faith,” an autobiography written by the Rev. James Solomon Russell, who was born enslaved, became an Episcopal priest and founded the school in 1888.

How To Survive College When You're Paying Your Own Way

Then, during Schandevel's junior year, the university's student government put out a campus affordability guide, written with the average Michigan student in mind — but it's worth noting that the average student at the school has a family income of about $150,000 per year.

The advice didn't go over well with low-income students on campus.

"A lot of the advice was like, fire your maid, or sell your car to save money," says Schandevel. "I was frustrated by this guide, and I was seeing others frustrated by it."

She decided to make her own affordability guide, and she fired up a Google doc and titled it, "Being Not-Rich at UM: A Guide." She added her own hacks — the things that helped her survive and budget. But there was so much she didn't know, so she left the sharing settings open for other students to jump in and edit the online document.
