Sponsor Benefits
HBCUstory relies on our sponsors to sustain and grow our year-round programming.

Held on the historic Fisk University campus in Nashville, Tennessee on October 9-10, 2015, the HBCUstory Symposium, a two-day research and cultural symposium, is first of its kind for the nation’s 107 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). As a sponsor, you support the symposium’s collection of scholarly research and case studies outlining the historic and contemporary value of HBCUs, and help to convene expert voices in HBCU life and culture.

Your sponsorship directly connects you to 100+ HBCU presidents, researchers, administrators, faculty members, students and alumni from across the nation convening in Music City U.S.A. Highlighted in announcements to the HBCU community through HBCUstory.com, which boasts 300,000+ views, your sponsorship will be shared and featured with our social media networks.
