William Harvey, President of Hampton University, an Historically Black College and University located in Hampton, VA has agreed to offer students from the University of the Bahamas a tuition free semester.
What We Know:
- Students from the University of the Bahamas will be able to continue their studies at the Hampton, Virginia campus for the Fall 2019 semester.
- The agreement will allow those students to attend Hampton University classes this fall and receive free room and board. The students will then have the option to stay at the school once the semester is over at regular tuition rates.
- “I think this agreement is something that can be helpful to a great number of students and families, and is part of something I’ve tried to do my entire career — helping people to achieve and meet their goals,” Hampton University President Dr. William R. Harvey said in a statement.
- “Hampton has been the educational choice for many Bahamians over its long history,” said Lawrence Rigby, a student from Nassau, Bahamas, who graduated in 2015. “I am grateful to President Harvey and university leadership on this demonstration of kindness and humanity to my home in our time of need.”
- Before Dr. Rodney Smith became president of the University of the Bahamas, he served as Administrative Vice President and Chief Planning Officer at Hampton.
