In May 2016, eight black women are earned their PhDs in Education from Indiana University. The amazing thing is the women did not all start the program together but they found each other along the way and cultivated relationships to help them achieve their goals.
In May, 2016 they made history. The university has never had eight Black women complete a program at one time. The Great 8 attribute their success to the ground work laid by Black women before them. They are committed to leaving institutional legacy so Black women still in the program and those coming behind them have the support they need to thrive. Graduation Ceremonies for the #Great8 was held on Indiana University campuses in Bloomington and Indianapolis campuses between May 5th and May 8th (2016).
