USF Institute on Black Life 2024 Annual Conference
Thursday, February 1, 9am-6:00pm
USF Selby Auditorium
The USF Institute on Black Life (IBL) will co-host its annual conference with the Office of Veteran Success. The conference theme is ‘Black Life and the Military.’ Topics specifically address the historic role of the military in Black life, addressing successes such as career and professional development opportunities, and upward mobility and challenges with racial injustice, health and mental well-being. The theme aligns with the University of South Florida’s research commitment to global and national security. USF is home to a robust Office of Veteran Success, a pioneering Military Leadership Center (JMLC), Army, Naval, and Air Force ROTC programs, a Global and National Security Institute, and a USF Institute of Applied Engineering (IAE) in collaboration with the Department of Defense. The university also liaises with several National Centers of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense at historically black colleges and universities.
