What is the Consortium?
We are a group of colleagues working in disability services at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Predominantly Black Colleges and Universities (PBCUs). The project was set up as a partnership between the University of the District of Columbia, Howard University, and Syracuse University, and the Association on Higher Education And Disability (AHEAD). The project is now permanently based at AHEAD.
What Does the Consortium Do?
We have an email listserv for HBCU disability services providers, this website, research with students and HBCU professionals, and much more! If you would like to join our mailing list or the email listserv, please go to the
"Contact Us" page on this website.
Is This Only for Black or African American students and HBCUs?
No - although they are our first priority. We are identifying ways to provide culturally responsive disability services and classroom instruction to Black and African American college students with disabilities on all campuses in the U.S.. By offering resources, a sense of history and community, support for students' multiple identities, and advice to those supporting and mentoring students, we're also trying to increase the number of Black and African American students with disabilities going to college, staying in college, and graduating.
Who Funds This Website?
The Consortium has been funded by a federal grant from the U.S. Department of Education's Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE). After the project ended in 2015, the project website and listserv continued at the Association on Higher Education And Disability (AHEAD). The original project website is still at http://www.hbcudisabilityconsortium.org.
