HBCU Presidents Private Forum
The purpose of this proposal is for the Mu Mu Nu Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. to engage in a collaborative event and partnership with HHBCUAA to promote scholarship. The HHBCUAA President Forum for HBCU is geared for all the HBCU presidents to come together towards understanding the current generation of students, what they expect from college, their contribution to society, and how to eradicate the school-to-prison pipeline that is decimating our community.
With our collaboration, the chapter members shall engage with these presidents to understand how we as Omega can uplift our community and provide students with the necessary capabilities to succeed.
The School-to-Prison Pipeline is one of the most urgent challenges in educaon today.
Eradicating the current path from schools to prison is putting the classroom-running and curriculum-building decisions in the hands of the teachers and creating social programs that enhance our community in the hands of our community leaders.
There are several topics to be discussed that promote this thought.
A New Educational Model
Raise standards for teachers.
Improved Resources for Teachers
Improving access to sustainable livelihoods, entrepreneurial opportunies, and producve resources
Providing universal access to basic social services
Progressively developing social protecon systems to support those who cannot support themselves
Acknowledge and address overcrowding in the classroom
Build a safe school community for all students
