The Common Ground Consortium
The Common Ground Consortium (CGC) was established in 1989 to form a consortium with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HCBU) to recruit on an annual basis African American graduates for advanced study. The primary purpose of CGC was to support them through their advanced academic journey with financial assistance, community support, and professional development.
CGC participants have gone on to become professors, consultants, superintendents, researchers, teachers and have done much to advance Black intellectualism.
