HBCU DIGITAL LEARNING

HBCU Digital Learning Infrastructure Initiative

The future of digital learning at Historically Black Colleges and Universities goes far beyond technology. It requires the harder-to-capture elements of culture and pedagogy that create a new student experience that drives Black student excellence, and it’s broader than teaching and learning. Successful digital programs give students purpose, momentum, structure, and support. These elements work together to create the technical and cultural infrastructure for the future of learning.

CCA and the partners of the HBCU Digital Learning Infrastructure (DLI) Initiative convened in Atlanta, Georgia, for a readout on the latest insights and innovations, informed by months-long, in-depth research into what’s working—and what’s next. Higher education leaders heard from experts and campus leaders working to shape the ways institutions, technologists, and philanthropy work together to invest in the policies, practices, and perspectives that will accelerate the unmatched success of Black students at HBCUs.

It’s Time to Reimagine the System

Our nation’s higher-education system is in need of serious reform, from classrooms all the way to state capitols. That’s why CCA insists on a three-part approach to shifting policy, perspective, and practice—the only way to ensure lasting change that produces more equitable outcomes for students.

Policy

Advancing policies that increase graduation rates across institutions, states, and the entire higher-ed system.

Perspective

Shifting mindsets to build student-centered campuses and remove barriers to graduation.

Practice

Promoting strategies that transform the student experience—then helping colleges implement those strategies successfully.

Transforming Institutions

We bring institutional leaders together with policymakers and higher education experts to create shared transformation agendas for states, systems, and consortia. By aligning stakeholders who often work in silos, we unlock powerful change. Get Started

Designing the College Experience Around Students

Evidence shows that what’s too often framed as student failure is, in reality, an institutional failure. While colleges and universities have historically assumed that a “one-size-fits-all” approach works for most students, CCA believes the most impactful institutions create equitable outcomes by understanding the unique needs of every student and building clear, supportive pathways to graduation across four critical areas of the student journey.

Purpose

Aligning the college experience to each student’s goals for the future.

Structure

Building course road maps that make the path to a degree or valued workplace credential clear.

Momentum

Designing multiple avenues for students to get started, earn credits faster, and stay on track to graduate.

Support

Addressing student needs and removing barriers to academic success.
