HBCUs: Supporting Investments; Strengthening Competitiveness


As the world’s largest HR professional association, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), believes there is clearly a nexus between U.S. education policy and the workplace. In principle, SHRM supports better alignment between education and employment—the “two Es” as we call it.

SHRM President and CEO, Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., and Chairman of the President’s Board of Advisors of the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities, attended the first day of the 2018 National Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) Conference this week in Washington DC. The 2018 conference theme is HBCU Competitiveness: Aligning Institutional Missions with America’s Priorities and is focused on supporting and improving HBCUs to address the priorities of the nation

Linking education and employment is smart U.S. policy. SHRM looks forward to continued participation in the discussion.
