A new initiative, using one-on-one coaching, aims to get 4,000 students who dropped out of historically Black colleges and universities to finish their studies.

The UNCF initiative focuses on the large number of students who earned some college credit but never graduated, as well as those who were enrolled last fall or this spring but failed to register for the fall 2021 semester. The program will also target students who dropped out amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“This initiative will empower returning HBCU students with high-impact resources and support to manage personal, financial and academic challenges of student life to the triumphant achievement of earning a degree,” said Michael Lomax, president and CEO of UNCF.
