We are excited to launch our newest effort, the On the Yard podcast.

On the Yard explores the culture and leadership trends happening across Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) nationwide. The podcast dives into the unique issues faced by these historic and minority-serving institutions through a series of conversations with leaders and advocates. The show is hosted by RW Jones Vice President and Managing Director Ashley Northington.

To be published every Friday for the next several weeks, On the Yard will bring listeners a dose of HBCU leadership and culture, one episode at a time.

The first episode features a sit down with Dr. Brittany Mosby, who shares her perspective about the current HBCU landscape. Mosby is the director of HBCU Success for the Tennessee Higher Education Commission. A graduate of the prestigious Spelman College and a former mathematics professor at Pellissippi State Community College, Mosby moved into her current role in 2018. In the newly created position, she oversees key operational services to strengthen the capacity of Tennessee’s seven historically Black institutions, including programming that helps institutions improve performance and student outcomes. In this capacity, Mosby leads the development of partnerships with the private sector and public-private partnerships to promote academic research and development at HBCUs.

In this conversation, she shares the three things HBCU leaders should do to propel their institutions forward and maintain the current level of interest and engagement.
