The HBCU – Brazil Alliance is intended to establish ongoing education collaborative ventures such as student exchanges in science, health, technology, engineering, computer science, mathematics, teacher education, architecture and planning, transportation and other programs. The goal of the alliance and the collaborative projects is to share best practices in civil rights, access to education, health and prevention, environmental justice, education and economic empowerment.
The alliance between HBCUs and Brazil is part of a commitment to cooperation under the U.S.-Brazil Joint Action Plan signed in March 2008 and affirmed by President Obama and Brazilian President Rousseff in March of this year. The initiative targets racial and ethnic discrimination, establishing a Historically Black College and University network, a short- term exchange program, and programs to target racism and human rights through education.
