Join us on Tuesday, February 28 from 2-3 p.m. in Technical Center (TC), Room 136 as we welcome Dr. Marybeth Gasman, professor of higher education at the University of Pennsylvania.

At this Black History Month event, Dr. Gasman will be discussing the historical origins of Historically Black Colleges and Universities
(HBCUs) as well as their relevance and the unique academic and social opportunities they provide. Montgomery College faculty and staff who are HBCU graduates are welcome to join and contribute to the discussion from their personal experiences and reflections. NOTE: This program follows Transfer Day so students are strongly encouraged to attend to learn more about HBCUs.

To learn more about Dr. Gasman and her scholarly work, please visit her website:

This event is being co-sponsored by the Office of Equity and Diversity and the Rockville Counseling Department.

For more information about this program, please contact Professor Marcus Peanort at or (240) 567-5055.
