Message from the President:
Fellow HBCU Alumni, DC Metro Area Alumni Chapter Presidents, Community Supporters, Friends &
My name is Jamie Tettey, graduate of my ‘Home by the Sea’ Hampton
University! I truly love HBCUs and believe we should be dedicated to making
sure they prosper. The goal of the Washington, DC Historically Black Colleges
& Universities Alumni Alliance, Inc. (DCHBCUAA) is to continue to have our
HBCUs thrive during these current times. Politics and financial discussions
should not mask the true conversations and contributions of HBCUs. “Black
colleges have served as important educational, cultural and social centers in
the black community. The strongest and most obvious impact HBCUs make on
the black community is seen through its graduates. It is for these reasons that
thousands of HBCU alumni feel especially endeared and indeed indebted to
their Alma maters.”
The DCHBCUAA is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization to promote HBCU alumni chapters in the
Washington, DC metro area. The primary purpose of the DCHBCUAA is to establish a way for all HBCUs
Alumni Chapters in the Washington, DC Metro Area to engage and reclaim alumni of HBCUs institutions,
jointly participate in social activities as one unit, and collaborate together to raise scholarship funds for all
participating DCHBCUAA’s alumni chapters in the Washington, DC metro area. In the four years since we
have been incorporated, our organization has expanded beyond our expectations. The DCHBCUAA has
grown to encompass thirty-eight HBCU Alumni Chapters in our family.
The DCHBCUAA will continue to work to support our colleges, universities and communities. The
DCHBCUAA has adopted three major initiatives to follow our mission and affect our community. We will
continue use our influence to 1) Develop Healthy Communities, 2) Fight Hunger in our Community and 3)
Support Higher Education for students. We have hosted successful fundraisers such as our DC Metro
HBCU Alumni Alliance Health and Wellness 5k Run/ 2k Walk. Our membership has supported the Food 2
Feed Food Drive and Capital Area Food Bank. Our volunteers continue to have a presence at community
events such as college fairs and financial workshops.
The Alliance invites your alumni chapter and alumni members to take part in this movement to help highlight
the wonderful educational and personal experience that HBCUs offer. As we move this organization forward,
I would hope that every alumni of an HBCU would get involved with their chapter and make a difference by
giving back to your institution. The DCHBCUAA will continue to necessitate the support of your alumni and
supporters. Take pride in what you have accomplished personally and professionally by attending an HBCU
event and take a moment to acknowledge what other alums have done to help you along the way.
PARTICIPATE.GIVE.SUPPORT. On behalf of the DC Metro HBCU Alumni Alliance, Inc., I wish all students
and graduates of HBCUs and their supporters my very best. Please check our website for information and
as always, you can contact the Executive Board members with your questions, concerns, and ideas. We
look forward to continuing to support alumni chapters, students, alumni and our community.
In the Spirit,
