President Lane leads panel on HBCUs in Texas

President Austin Lane participated in the 2017 Texas Tribune Festival September 23 in Austin. Lane was part of the Public and Higher Education committee and the panel What HBCUs Mean for Texas. The panel’s consensus was that HBCUs strengthen communities and lift up students and families by enabling educational attainment and opportunity. Lane was joined by Paul Quinn College President Michael Sorrell, Huston-Tillotson President and CEO Colette Pierce Burnette and State Representative James White. The panel was moderated by Texas Tribune Managing Editor Corrie MacLaggan.

 While in Austin, President Lane took the opportunity to meet with the Texas Southern University National Alumni Association Austin Alumni Chapter during their chapter meeting. He shared his top priorities with alumni and upcoming initiatives with alumni including the 90th Anniversary celebration events, homecoming activities, the TSU license plates initiative, the Brick Campaign, and the 2018 Maroon & Gray Affair scheduled for April 28, 2018.
