Three HBCUs Team Up for Initiative That Will Focus on Faculty Development

Tennessee State University, Morgan State University in Baltimore, and Norfolk State University in Virginia are teaming up to form the C3 Cluster, a consortium that will focus on faculty development. The initiative is funded by a $1.2 million grant from the United Negro College Fund.

The consortium on Transformative Teaching Practice for 21st Century Career Pathways will engage in structured activities that foster community, identifies and validates new innovations, amplifies and scales best practices, and disseminates learnings. While primarily focused on faculty, the C3 Cluster will extend their collaborative efforts to include additional members of their university communities. Key to its work will be creating opportunities for alumni and employer partners to provide valuable input on preparing undergraduate students for post-graduate success.

Glenda Glover, president of Tennessee State University, said that “one goal of the C3 Cluster initiative is to serve as a model for collaboration among universities committed to student success. The collaboration with Morgan State and Norfolk State is the perfect synergy, given the missions of the partners and the tradition of excellence that we all value. We are happy to serve as an equitable partner in the C3 Cluster initiative and sincerely appreciate our UNCF funder in granting the funds to continue our efforts to help students succeed through innovative pedagogy.”
