Join the AACC as we finish up our Faculty Fellows Q&A series with Jason Coupet, associate professor of public administration at NC State, discussing how HBCUs can influence our standard for academic success on Oct. 28, 2020 from 4–5 p.m.
The Faculty Fellowship program supports NC State faculty members’ research endeavors relating to African American and African diasporic cultures. The program engages faculty and students in insightful conversations around healing, Black health and how race intersects with the virtual landscape.

About Jason Coupet
Jason Coupet’s research titled, Communicating and learning from HBCU successes with benchmarking science, engages with HBCUs to dispute the idea that Historical Black Colleges and Universities are homogenous; on the contrary, it’s the differences among Historical Black Colleges and Universities that serve as a source of strength and influence for institutional success.
