Who We Are

The purpose of Hubbard Scholars is to create and maintain a healthy community for Black men on campus. As a group of men affiliated with the University of Iowa as students, staff, and faculty, we seek to follow the legacy of Phillip G. Hubbard, the first tenured African American professor at the University of Iowa.

What We Do

The Hubbard Scholars offer programming, events, and services to meet three important objectives:

  1. Foster a more inclusive community of learning and support for Black men.
  2. Provide educational resources to the University of Iowa and Iowa City community about the various attitudes and performances that men of African descent embody.
  3. Increase the retention and success of Black men associated with the University of Iowa.

As Black men, it is our hope to foster self-awareness and promote human dignity and respect for individual experiences in a world of difference.
