HBCU schools celebrate

September 11, 2006

Albany -- The US Senate is calling Americans to show support for Black Colleges.

This week Albany State University is one school celebrating "National Historically Black Colleges and Universities Week."

Georgia is home to ten HBCU schools.

ASU leaders say they're proud to be among them.

"Since the founding of HBCUs there have been significant support coming from our Congress, our Senate, and the White House HBCU initiative," said VP for Institutional Advancement Angela Getter.

Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina introduced the resolution that created HBCU week.

ASU faculty are also reaching out to alumni during this time to gain support for improved programs at the school.
