Wilberforce University President to Announce Sustainability Initiative
Elfred Anthony Pinkard, Ed.D., President of Wilberforce University, will deliver a State of the University Address on Friday, March 29, 2019 to kick off the annual alumni Dawn Dance weekend and begin the #WilberforceUnite stakeholder initiative as the first step toward reclaiming the University’s prominence.
“Over the past 18 months, at Wilberforce, we have been engaged in strategic and focused discussion about the value proposition of the Wilberforce University academic and student engagement experience and the challenges of returning our beloved Wilberforce to institutional prominence and high performance. We have begun, in earnest, the critical, important, and hard work of acknowledging our challenges and outlining a proactive plan for our path forward. I will announce an aggressive fundraising campaign to raise the necessary funds to support the current momentum and assure the future of Wilberforce. We are excited about this launch and our expectations for success.”
When ‘me’ becomes ‘we,’ a little becomes a lot.” Participants will include Bishop Frank Reid, Chancellor of Wilberforce University and Presiding Prelate and Senior Bishop of the Third Episcopal District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church; Wilberforce University Board of Trustees and Student Leaders. #WilberforceUnite
