A seasoned professional with a doctorate in education, Dr. Philip Hickman has served in leadership roles for numerous school districts throughout his career. Leveraging his experience and training in education, Dr. Philip Hickman has conducted workshops for the United States Department of Education and served as a guest speaker for organizations such as the National Alliance of Black School Educators (NABSE).
Established in 1979, the National Alliance of Black School Educators was created to help promote the education of black students and develop a coalition of administrators and professionals in the African-American community who are working toward this goal.
NABSE administers a number of programs and services to achieve its ends, including a partnership with the National Research Center for College and University Admissions (NRCCUA) to create the Pipeline for African American Teachers.
The pipeline provides historically black universities and colleges with the names of high school seniors in their communities who are interested in becoming teachers to support recruitment efforts.
