Philanthropic Equity for MSIs

The event took place on October 19, 2021, from 2 PM - 3:30 PM ET

Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) serve large numbers of low-income and students of color and are critical to our nation's success. Yet, many of these institutions are under-resourced and experience philanthropic inequities when compared to their predominantly White counterparts. This first webinar in a two-part series highlighted MSIs, brought attention to their philanthropic challenges, and discussed opportunities for leveraging institutional identity, data, and partnerships to improve their funding opportunities. 

Moderated by Marybeth Gasman, Samuel DeWitt Proctor Endowed Chair in Education and Distinguished Professor, Rutgers University and Virgil Parker, HBCU Graduate 

Panelists included: 

  • Michael Sorrell, President of Paul Quinn College 
  • Noah Drezner, Professor of Higher & Postsecondary Education, Principal Investigator of The Tzedakah Lab, Teachers College, Columbia University and Founding Editor, Philanthropy & Education
  • Rowena Tomaneng, President, San Jose City College
  • Tyrone McKinley Freeman, Associate Professor of Philanthropic Studies and Director of Undergraduate Programs, Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy
