The Office of Inclusive Excellence is inviting student applicants for the Fall 2021 semester CSUSM – HBCU Exchange Program. We are looking for students to participate in academic research groups and community engaged relationship with Historically Black Colleges & Universities. The student will work with a group (or cohort) of a faculty from CSUSM and a faculty and student from an HBCU. The topic of the research group is related to Communication and Marketing. This Exchange Program will take place during the Fall semester of 2021.

 The goals of the CSUSM-HBCU Exchange Program are: 

  1. To engage in undergraduate research, teaching and mentoring as a high-impact practice
  2. To foster retention and academic excellence amongst African American students
  3. To foster retention and professional development of Black faculty on the CSUSM campus
  4. To increase the presence of African American faculty on the CSUSM campus
  5. To establish a network of African American faculty (TT and Lecturer); and
  6. To develop a community of scholars with a focus on developing research on pedagogy for teaching social justice across-disciplines.


The CSUSM-HBCU Exchange Project will provide students an opportunity to work with faculty-mentors and practice both quantitative and qualitative research methods in a real-world environment, and in a cultural environment different than their own campus community. Activities will include mentoring by faculty and directed research by students of the cohort.  The directed research topic is related to Communication and Marketing. The Exchange cohort will give public presentations (for example: lectures, talks, performances) in their counterparts’ campus community. 
 Student Scholarship: $500
