Institute for Capacity Building
Who We Are and What We Do
When college administrators need to improve their student retention, they come to the UNCF Institute for Capacity Building (ICB) for an enrollment management program. When faced with budget shortfalls, they turn to ICB for guidance. Schools launching capital campaigns turn to ICB for consulting help.
ICB was launched by UNCF in 2006 to provide targeted capacity-building resources to help UNCF’s 37 member institutions improve admission, retention and graduation rates. ICB’s work focuses on three areas critical to HBCU success: enrollment management, institutional advancement and fiscal and strategic technical assistance.
Call for Proposals
The Frederick D. Patterson Research Institute Research Symposium “One Mission. One Voice.”
FDPRI invites proposals for the Research Symposium on July 12-13, 2020. The purpose of the one-day pre-convening is to facilitate the delivery of research, knowledge and best practices from academics and experts in higher education. Specifically, we want to highlight the voices of HBCU scholars and advocates. This year’s theme for HBCU Converge is “One Mission. One Voice.” Our theme illuminates the commonalities and united purpose of HBCUs. It also highlights how different functional areas across an institution work toward the same goal of higher education access and the generational success of its students. We encourage proposals which present the following sub-focus:
- cross-institutional/organizational collaboration
- workforce intersections
- issues of marginalization and inclusion with deep considerations of how representation and hierarchies of privilege (e.g., race, social class, ability, assigned sex, gender identity and expression, sexuality, religion
