Complete College America (CCA) has selected six Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs) to take part in a first-of-its-kind Digital Learning Infrastructure (DLI) initiative. As a national leader focused on building movements to transform postsecondary education and drive college completion, CCA will work alongside these partner institutions to reimagine how colleges and universities can build digital cultures that promote learning and student success. In addition to the participating institutions, CCA has convened 19 leading experts from HBCUs, Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs), and the digital learning sector who will advise the initiative as it explores innovations that will dramatically improve outcomes for students.
The six selected institutions are: Coppin State University in Baltimore, MD; Langston University in Langston, OK; Mississippi Valley State University in Itta Bena, MS; Virginia State University in Petersburg, VA; Wiley College in Marshall, TX; and Xavier University of Louisiana in New Orleans, LA. Institutions were evaluated on a number of criteria, including track record of innovation, commitment to student success, and novel uses of technology to deliver exceptional learning and campus experiences. These institutions – with the support of the advisory board – will collaborate on an extensive research and design project focused on building an integrated framework for digital learning at HBCUs.
