Like you, we want to see more Black faces enjoying spaces that are currently lacking in color, such as running trails, climbing mountains, and sitting at outdoor industry boardroom tables. The optimal way to accomplish that is by empowering Black leaders to welcome them. HBCUs Outside is designed to sustainably advance diversification of the outdoors. We work to be that bridge for HBCU students, the best and brightest of America’s future Black leaders. That’s how we make an impact in outdoor sports, on our society, and for our environment. —Ron Griswell, HBCUs Outside Founder
