NAHB Investing in the Future

In 2023, NAHB’s Careers in Construction team launched its first-ever Historically Black College and University (HBCU) Student and Faculty Leadership program.

This new initiative, led by Student Chapter Advisory Board Chair Dr. Charner Rodgers and Vice Chair Mr. Myles Cardenas, expands opportunities with HBCU students through leadership development seminars and networking throughout the year.

Already off to a quick start, students and faculty participated in two multi-day programs at the National Housing Center in Washington, D.C. in June and September.
