Our Goals

  • Meeting like Minded People: To share and engage in conversation and implement solutions toward barriers that hinder black personnel in higher education.

  • Networking: To actively engage in network-building activities with local, state, and national organizations for the purpose of securing changes in laws and policies detrimental to our constituents.

  • Recruitment/Retention: To assist and serve our members, and the institutions where we work by establishing effective institutional programs to recruit and retain black personnel (professional staff & faculty), and students in higher education

  • Sharing Information: TABPHE and the Austin chapter encourages its members to educate college/university leadership about African-American faculty, staff and student recruitment & retention strategies.
