Time Magazine: Author Ron Stodghill Mentions Koch-UNCF Partnership

Ron Stodghill, author of a new book on challenges facing the HBCU community, discussed CKF’s support of UNCF in a new piece for Time Magazine. Last year the Charles Koch Foundation joined with Koch Industries, Inc. to support student scholarships and programming at UNCF-member Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The grant aids students in their exploration of a marketplace of ideas through an online community and annual summit. Stodghill revisits the grant in a piece titled “What Dr. Dre and the Koch Brothers Have In Common

“Hanging in the balance, though, are some 325,000 students enrolled in HBCUs today – students who rightly expect these institutions to provide an education that fully prepares them to compete in today’s job market or pursue post-graduate studies… HBCUs are under siege, and the war of words only distracts from the real issue, which is how to rescue them before it’s too late.”
