The send-off is designed for all Cleveland area college-bound freshmen students and upperclassmen returning to a Historically Black College or University in the fall of 2023. The send-off is the closing activity of the council’s annual commitment to providing wraparound educational support services to aid students to reach the “Destination HBCU” of their choice. This event and the support of our partners and donors will enable us to continue to do the work that we do in the name of our individual and collective institutions.

Freshmen, new incoming transfers, and current HBCU students will receive free entry. Freshmen and new incoming transfers can bring one parent/guardian for free. Alumni, additional guests, and supports are $10.00.

Freshmen and new incoming transfers, to be eligible for a trunk, you must submit proof of your paid enrollment/orientation fee and /or housing deposit for the Fall 2023 semester by 5:00 pm, Friday, June 16, 2023.

Students must be present to receive a trunk.

About the organizer

The Cleveland Council of Black Colleges Alumni Association, also known as the HBCU Alumni CLE Council was established on Sunday, July 27, 1975 by Sylvester Reed, a graduate of Tuskegee Institute (now University). The council is an alliance of local alumni, alumni chapters and supporters of the public and private Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The organization is also affiliated with the Northern Ohio Inter-Alumni Council of the United Negro College Fund, which shares a similar philosophy with a regional and national outreach and mission.​

The primary purpose of the council is to:

Enhance the awareness of HBCUs,

Provide HBCU student recruitment and scholarship opportunities, and

Offer alumni development, support and fundraising to the institutions we serve.
