San Francisco is partnering with historically Black colleges and universities to bring educational programs to the city this summer as local leaders seek to attract a permanent satellite campus to help revitalize downtown.

The schools, known as HBCUs, will use existing student housing from the University of San Francisco and classroom space from San Francisco State University for the summer programs. Topics will include science, math, environmental justice and journalism. A 20-student financial tech accelerator program and eight-student program with the Department of Police Accountability are also planned. UCSF will also work with Black colleges and universities on mental health mentoring, training and internships.

The list of schools involved hasn’t been finalized, but the city is in talks with Charles R. Drew University, Howard University, Morehouse College, Morgan State University, Morris Brown College, Tuskegee University and the University of the District of Columbia. Some college representatives attended an event Friday at the War Memorial Performing Arts Center that was focused on the effort, with city departments and Bay Area tech companies also in attendance to tout the city’s powerhouse economy and educational opportunities.

The city’s Human Rights Commission, which focuses on anti-discrimination efforts and racial equity, is leading the effort, called “Black 2 San Francisco.”
“After many years of planning, and months of seeding and working to create meaningful partnerships, all the stakeholders are together to explore how we can connect San Francisco to the incredible talent that has historically been cultivated and supported by HBCUs,” said Sheryl Davis, executive director of the commission, in a statement.

City officials hope bringing a permanent campus to downtown would help inject new energy and residents to the area, which has been hit hard by remote work. More than a third of the city’s office space is vacant, a record high. However, there are no HBCUs west of Texas, and San Francisco real estate costs remain some of the highest in the country, even after receding during the pandemic.

“In San Francisco, we are working to build partnerships that strengthen our leadership as a center of education, innovation and opportunity,” Mayor London Breed said in a statement. “By bringing HBCUs to our City, we can not only create a connection to empower our next generation of leaders, but we can also contribute to the revitalization of our City.”
Separately, the University of California and UC Berkeley are in talks with the city about a potential new campus

SMF and LAX to VA and NC
This is visionary and the partnership could, if executed correctly, be a real boon for The City. Down to 6.6% black there, a city with a ton of black history that could be revitalized if there were black education institutions that grew there...

If it works for SF I can see other western cities trying this. I'd love to see this in Sac. Charles Drew was in LA, they say they in talks with them, I thought CDU shuttered pre-Recession in the late 00s. If it's still alive I don't know why they hadn't been looked towards unconventional expansion in other California cities...

For what? San Fran is pretty much an inhospitable dump now.

in the current republican climate , and given how heavily dependent hbcu(s) are on federal funding, i doubt they will do any of that. You gotta realize that there is an army of rightwing lawyers salivating when news like this breaks.



Any mention of helping or catering to black people is like jumping into a burmese tiger trap.:mjgrin:

The only real benefit to black people these schools can offer is the repatriation of higher california tuition fees (payed by whites and asians) back to black students in dc/atl/lousiana at the HQs of these schools. Its lowkey a racial wealth transfer if they can pull it off. There is all sorts of itemized accounting magic they can do with those funds, by passing them off as “student fees” which can get through republican censors.

beyond that, Perhaps they can offer a few more black history classes than your average school .:yeshrug:

This is long overdue, west coast is dying for HBCU representation. Let’s get some morehouse, howard and spelman campuses popping over here
