Bolen, a 2015-16 ICSC Foundation Fiala Fellow, will speak about his Fiala Fellowship and plans to increase the representation of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) and its students within ICSC. Of the more than 1,400 student members in the ICSC, only 17 of them are HBCU students; and only two of the more than 400 schools represented within the ICSC are HBCUs. He will push to increase the HBCU’s student membership from 17 to 30 and to increase the HBCU’s representation from two schools to eight schools. Bolen also will lay the groundwork for the first HBCU represented at RECON.

Bolen will speak during the conference’s Breakfast/Opening Remarks & Program Overview, which will take place from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. on Aug. 31 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando.
