Cleveland Council of Black Colleges Alumni Association

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.
