HBCU Curriculum Development

The purpose of the HBCU Regional Workshops was to facilitate the building of relationships between behavioral sciences, behavioral health, substance abuse, and mental health academics and members of the information technology departments on HBCU campuses in order to provide an atmosphere for institutional representatives to establish and achieve substance abuse and mental health curricula writing goals. The curriculum workshops were developed under the HBCU-NRC grant (TI-17165). View past Curriculum Development workshop presentations

Past HBCU-CFE News

On April 29, 2010, Gil Kerlikowske, director of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), and Dr. Ileana Arias, principal deputy director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, visited the HBCU-CFE at Morehouse of Medicine to discuss how the HBCU-CFE, with funding from SAMHSA, is facilitating coordination among HBCU institutions to support culturally appropriate substance abuse and mental health prevention, treatment, and student health and wellness needs on HBCU campuses.
“I applaud the Morehouse School of Medicine’s leadership in creating the HBCU Center for Excellence,” said Kerlikowske. “The Center for Excellence has the opportunity to provide evidence-based substance abuse prevention programs to thousands of students attending the 105 HBCUs across the country.”
