CCAC to hold Historically Black Colleges & Universities recruitment fair

The Community College of Allegheny County's Allegheny Campus.

The Community College of Allegheny County will host the second annual HBCU (Historically Black Colleges & Universities) Recruitment and Transfer Fair on Oct. 11.

The free event will be held in the Foerster Student Services Center on the Allegheny Campus from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the auditorium lobby on the second floor. The event is open to the public.

Students are encouraged to bring copies of their academic transcripts for on-site admission and transfer scholarship considerations.

The fair is being held in partnership with the Western Pennsylvania Council of HBCU Alumni.

HBCUs are institutions of higher education that were established before the Civil Rights Act of 1964 with the intention of primarily serving the African-American community due to historic racial discrimination and segregation.

More than 25 HBCUs will be at the fair including Alabama State University, Florida A&M University, Grambling State University and Jackson State University.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
