With so many options, finding the right degree can be a challenge. That’s where we come in.

You deserve guidance to discover the diverse, supportive, and authentic college or university that fits you. We provide that clarity through our directory of traditionally Black colleges — all curated to make your college search easy.

Our Core Values

  • Student Centered

    We promote a students-first environment that can provide solutions, instill confidence in online learning, and offer a clear path to education as a means of self-improvement.

  • Outcomes-Based

    Success leaves footprints, so we highlight real life examples and data to give our students a frame of reference as they align themselves with their goals.

  • Intentionally Traditional

    We work to create an equitable future with the lessons of the past by leveraging the legacies of HBCUs and their role in our communities, regions, and country.

  • Actively Involved

    We learn the issues that matter to our audience so we can boldly show up with proactive support to important causes with our platform — whether called upon or not.
