The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has partnered with Kentucky State University at Frankfurt to develop a curriculum for students interested in pursuing careers in civil rights and fair housing.

This partnership is designed to promote fair housing and educate students about their rights under the Fair Housing Act, which prohibits discrimination in housing based on race, color, national origin, sex, religion, families with children, or disability.

In addition, campuses will develop service-learning opportunities with local fair-housing groups and encourage students to consider public service as a career. HUD has signed proclamations with Tennessee State University and Clark Atlanta University and is in discussions with other schools and community colleges across the country.
