In attempting to reach more students, select HSBC’s have opted to offer online courses and distance learning that would provide graduates with an HBCU certificate or degree. The program, HBCUsOnline is an educational initiative/company in collaboration with celebrity Tom Joyner. This collaboration is promoting the benefits of having access to the social environment of an HBCU, getting a certificate or accredited degree from a recognized HBCU, and of graduating into the ranks of famous HBCU alumni like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Tom Joyner, Ann Bradley, Spike Lee and others. HBCUsOnline is set to begin classes in January 2011. Joyner first announced the online program for students who want to study at HBCUs during a speech at Fayetteville State University in February, around the time of Obama’s executive order.

[ed note: Hampton University recently launched a significant new online learning initiative!]
