About the NFL's HBCU initiative.
In May 2016, the NFL launched Strength of HBCUs, Impacting Pro Football Since 1948 in partnership with two prominent HBCU athletic conferences: the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) and the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC). Since then, the initiative has expanded to also include other conferences and schools to recognize and strengthen its relationships with HBCUs across the country. Through these relationships, the NFL has developed several programs focused on HBCUs to educate and connect students to careers in soccer administration and the sports industry in general.
