"I don't think the president could have done better," Ms. Malveaux said. "At the conference, Dr. Wilson already set the tone with listening and hosted eight hours of listening sessions with HBCU presidents. We're very excited."
Julianne Malveaux, president of Bennett College, said "Our biggest problem is funding. HBCU schools have been forced to do more with less. Every day I have a brilliant student that is contemplating dropping out of school because she can't afford it. We can't keep losing solid students because of affordability."
