"Why is HUB so important? As an alumnus, I know first hand what HUB can do for students because of what it has done for me. HUB gave me a vision of what I could be, gave me a pathway of how I could get there, and gave me the skill sets to compete when I arrived."

 - Dr. Darryl L. Taylor, '70, HUB Director, 2010 - Present
