UNCF envisions a nation where everyone has access to a quality college education. Integral to this vision is the work of our Institute of Capacity Building, which partners with Black colleges and universities to propel their pursuit of student success, community advancement and the fight for equity and social justice.

To advance the promise of Black higher education, the Institute hosts UNITE summit each year as the premier platform and gathering to support one another and unite around a comprehensive, assertive set of strategies for institutional transformation and continuous improvement.
