Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Southern University System Foundation

Baton Rouge, La.



The foundation raises and manages private gifts to the Southern University System that promote academic excellence on all five university campuses. This grant supports the creation of the system’s Five-Fifths Agenda for America, which seeks to increase attainment of postsecondary degrees by African American males by elevating the role of historically black colleges and universities as drivers of innovation and educational excellence.
