A future focus, rooted in history

You’ll find that we draw inspiration from our founder, Mary McLeod Bethune. She was herself future-focused. Like students at her university, she was about setting a vision for the future and delivering the intelligence, entrepreneurial initiative and drive to make things happen. She never let up. And she succeeded. The first in her family not to be born into slavery, she not only founded a great university, she also rose to be a national leader and advisor to presidents. She was one of the most influential people of her time.

In that spirit, we are propelled forward by our history, we celebrate the excellence of today’s B-CU and we look to shape the future. Being part of all this is powerful. We invite you to explore our programs and consider becoming a B-CU Wildcat!
