HBCUs are a source of accomplishment and great pride for the African American community as well as the entire nation. The Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, defines an HBCU as: “…any historically black college or university that was established prior to 1964, whose principal mission was, and is, the education of black Americans, and that is accredited by a nationally recognized accrediting agency.” HBCUs offer all students, regardless of race, an opportunity to develop their skills and talents.

A graduate of Wilberforce University, Brown is a member of the National Association of Colleges and Employers as well as the Cincinnati Corporate Diversity Board and Board and currently sits on the board of directors for Arrowhead’s United Way.
