Institute for Capacity Building
Who We Are and What We Do
When college administrators need to improve their student retention, they come to the UNCF Institute for Capacity Building (ICB) for an enrollment management program. When faced with budget shortfalls, they turn to ICB for guidance. Schools launching capital campaigns turn to ICB for consulting help.
ICB was launched by UNCF in 2006 to provide targeted capacity-building resources to help UNCF’s 37 member institutions improve admission, retention and graduation rates. ICB’s work focuses on three areas critical to HBCU success: enrollment management, institutional advancement and fiscal and strategic technical assistance.
Call for Proposals
The Frederick D. Patterson Research Institute Research Symposium “For Us By Us (F.U.B.U.): The HBCU Effect”
The purpose of the one-day pre-convening is to facilitate the delivery of research, knowledge and best practices from academics and experts in the higher education field. Specifically, we want to highlight the voices of HBCU scholars and advocates. Proposals which present cross-institutional/organizational collaboration, workforce intersections, and/or entertain issues of marginalization and inclusion, representation, hierarchies of privilege (e.g., race, social class, ability, assigned sex, gender identity and expression, sexuality, religion/spirituality/faith, and global/transnational) are encouraged.
