HBCU could be coming to San Francisco

San Francisco could become the site of a historically Black satellite campus.

The San Francisco Human Rights Commission met with local university leaders and HBCU administrators recently to explore the possibility of establishing a satellite campus in the Bay Area city, according to Inside Higher Education.

Because HBCUs must be established prior to 1964, an entirely new campus cannot be established.

Representatives from Morris Brown College and Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, Tuskegee University in Alabama and Howard University in Washington, D.C. attended. Representatives from Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science, a historically Black graduate school in Los Angeles, also attended, according to the article.

The commission expects some financial support from the Dream Keeper Initiative, a citywide initiative to invest $60 million a year into Black communities, according to Inside Higher Education.
