Large Companies Wooing HBCU Grads in Wake of Floyd Death

Since the police murder of George Floyd last summer, officials at historically Black colleges and universities say major companies are pursuing their students and graduates at unprecedented levels.

HBCU leaders report a marked increase in the number of internships and job interviews provided by major companies such as Bank of America, according to CNN.

“In my 24-year career in higher education, all in career services, I cannot recall a time when recruitment efforts at HBCUs have been this high and have stayed this high,” Seana Coulter, director of the center for career development at Morgan State University in Baltimore, CNN reported Thursday.

At Howard University, career outreach from major corporations has increased “100%” over the past year, said Debbi Jarvis, the school’s senior vice president of corporate relations.

“It’s doubled,” Jarvis told CNN Business this month. “They actually want to engage with students, even virtually, to increase their pipeline and be deliberate about it.”
