NCCU Named 2018 HBCU Awards Finalist


University captures four category nominations for the annual awards 

North Carolina Central University (NCCU) has been chosen as a finalist in four categories of the 2018 Historically Black College and University (HBCU) Awards.

For the second consecutive year, NCCU’s Social Work Program is a contender for Best Social Work Program, a title won by the Eagles in 2017.  The Vocal Jazz Ensemble is in the running for Best Choir. 

NCCU is a finalist in two additional categories: Best Student Organization (Student Orientation, Advising and Registration Leaders or SOAR) and National Alumni Association of the Year.

The HBCU Awards ceremony is the only national recognition program honoring individual and institutional achievement at HBCUs. NCCU was the all-around winner in 2016, when it was named HBCU of the Year. A panel of former and current HBCU presidents and chancellors, alumni, faculty, students, journalists and former award winners serve as judges.

Finalists were selected from more than 700 submissions from schools around the nation. Winners will be announced during the HBCU Awards Ceremony on June 22 at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel in Baltimore, Md.

The HBCU Awards are sponsored by HBCU Digest, an online news site covering historically black colleges and universities and the issues that affect them.
