B-CU Hosts Divine Nine Presidents Retreat
President Jackson is excited to host such an illustrious group of guests on the campus of B-CU. "We are overjoyed that the Presidents of the Divine Nine have chosen to convene here on our campus. Our founder, Mary McLeod-Bethune, was an honorary member of the Divine Nine and these organizations are a large part of our campus culture," says President Jackson. Jennifer Jones, President of the National Pan-Hellenic Council, is optimistic about this weekend's event and credits B-CU with helping to create a great experience for these leaders. "We reached out to B-CU to host this event and they agreed. They have been extremely helpful; and it's been a great partnership," says Jones. The presidents will travel to Daytona Beach today and formally meet on Friday and Saturday. There are no planned receptions or outside events surrounding the retreat.
