UNCF Institute for Capacity Building
How might our institutions provide intentional and sustainable pathways to build 21st century competencies and help our students find meaningful employment in their desired career field?
UNCF is missioned to build a robust and nationally-recognized pipeline of under-represented students who, because of UNCF support, become highly-qualified college graduates and to ensure that our network of member institutions is a respected model of best practice in moving students to and through college. Since April 2018, the Lab has collaborated with UNCF to accelerate the development of programs that will strengthen the capacity of institutions to meet students’ career development needs now and in the future. Our work with UNCF currently includes three initiatives:
- Career Pathways Initiative Cohort 1: 2019-2020, 14 institutions
- Career Pathways Initiative Cohort 2: 2020-2021, 8 institutions
- Liberal Arts Innovation Centers: 2020 – 2021, 4 institutions
