The Black Executive Exchange Program is a voluntary partnership between the National Urban League, Corporate America, government and non-profits to loan African-American executives, as "visiting professors,” to Historically Black Colleges and Universities. BEEP's mission is to share learning experiences across generations, cultivate new leaders, and inspire achievements. Visiting professors lecture in courses that correspond to their industries and participate in other BEEP-related activities such as networking sessions, workshops and mock interviews.
BEEP exposes HBCU students to working professionals and familiarizes them with the demands and expectations of their industries. Through Career Awareness & Planning Seminars students are prepared to become the sophisticated and well-prepared employees that Corporate America and its global competitors are seeking. This year’s participating sponsors and contributors include: Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, Mississippi College of Law, USDA Forest Service, US Department of Labor and the Urban League of Greater Jackson Young Professionals.
