The National Urban League’s Black Executive Exchange Program (BEEP) has provided generations of students with career exposure and mentorship for over four decades through partnerships with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) via on campus activities, virtual supports and leadership development conferences.
The State of BEEP Report is an assesment and review of all of the BEEP partner schools. The goal is to provide a comprehensive review of the successes of each school year as well as utilize what we learn for future planning. We appreciate the the continued support of our partners and look forward to your thoughtful responses.

2012 marks the 150th anniversary of LeMoyne-Owen College (LOC) located in Memphis, Tennessee. LeMoyne College and Owen College merged in 1968 to provide a liberal arts education and career training in a Christian setting that historically has served black students. From its founding by missionaries to teach free and runaway slaves LeMoyne-Owen College has triumphed through adversity. The school was burnt down by race riots but was rebuilt, it struggled through periods of financial crisis but now has found stability; the school has much to celebrate.
