BBCB 2018 Summit
March 24-28, 2018
The trustees and administration wanted the college to focus on the student success issues involving African American and Latino males. In order to respond to this request, college representatives began to explore the potential underlying problems that negatively impacted persistence, retention, and graduation regarding the students at Hillsborough Community College. It was decided to seek more information from others who had similar issues and concerns. Consequently, in 2006, the college held the first Black, Brown & College Bound Summit to ascertain if others had similar concerns and evidenced the negative student success patterns.
