Bringing Diverse Perspectives to American Business

The HBCU Consortium is the creation of the C3 Cluster, a collaboration between Morgan State University (MSU), Norfolk State University (NSU), and Tennessee State University (TSU) through the UNCF Career Pathways Initiative. The UNCF Career Pathways Initiative (CPI), funded by Lilly Endowment, is a $50 million investment over a seven-year period, that helps four-year HBCUs and PBIs strengthen institutional career placement outcomes with the goal of increasing the number of graduates who immediately transition to meaningful jobs in their chosen fields.

Our Mission

We believe that there is an opportunity for a deeper dive on the purpose of the endeavor and/or perspectives of the professors who were involved in building the program. Ideally, we would like to include a snapshot of the student perspective as they think about their path to building the skill-set that today’s workforce needs.
