Target I: HBCU for Life: A Call to Action

OCO Sorors kick off HBCU Week with a sisterly brunch!

For this program initiative, Omicron Chi Omega will support Alpha Kappa Alpha's focus on education with an emphasis on historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). Some key areas of involvement include:

 - Actively participating in HBCU Week, September 17-21, 2018! View HBCU facts and VA HBCU facts for more information on these dynamic colleges and universities. 

 - Promoting and marketing historically black colleges and universities, and encouraging students to attend HBCUs as a sustainability measure. Activities will include researching and publishing information regarding prominent Alpha Kappa Alpha women and other notable individuals who attended HBCUs.

 - Encouraging member donations to HBCU funding efforts for the long-term growth and survival of HBCUs. Alpha Kappa Alpha will implement an AKA HBCU Endowment Initiative in partnership with the Educational Advancement Foundation, in which an endowed scholarship will be established at each accredited four-year HBCU. The goal is to stamp the Alpha Kappa Alpha brand of financial support on each HBCU campus to help students remain in school, complete their course of study, and receive their college degrees.
