Greetings on behalf of the Northeast Region of the National Council on Black

region during this time of growth and transition. As we continue to navigate these
unprecedented times, NCBAA-NE remains committed to increasing awareness of the
critical issues facing black students and professionals in higher education. We
continue to work diligently and collaboratively to ensure that our voice is heard as
policies that impact our professional goals and our student’s success are created.

Delaware, District of Columbia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire,
New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, Vermont and
