The primary focus for DSI is the implementation of Stillman’s strategic plan, which represents our strategic direction and transformational changes to for Stillman to accomplish our mission and vision.
The HBCU Transformation Initiative enables the substantial transformation of HBCUs at scale, helping to close racial disparities and increase economic mobility and wealth-building for Black people and communities.
There is a compelling opportunity to invest in two primary intermediaries that have supported HBCUs for decades and a third that emerged during the COVID crisis. By investing in United Negro College Fund (UNCF), Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF), and Partnership for Education Advancement (EdAdvance), Blue Meridian Partners supports a network of high-performing and high-potential HBCUs to increase enrollments, increase student outcomes, and support their longer-term financial sustainability. Stillman College was selected to be a part of cohort two of this three-year initiative.
