What HBCU’s are saying:

  • FAMU – “As the director of the Office of Internship & Placement for the FAMU SJGC, I highly recommend bringing the program to your campus. It will open the eyes of students as well as faculty about networking techniques and industry programs that will help them go behind the curtain of entertainment industry. The EICOP is on its way from being one of the industry’s best kept secrets to becoming a must have program on college campuses through out the nation.” – Yanela Gordon

  • TSU – “The conference brought entertainment leaders and professionals to the University which exposed our diverse group of students to the industry and gave them insight as to how to successfully navigate the industry. More than a conference, this event was an eye-opening, educational experience for our students to learn about and connect with the entertainment industry.” – Tina Reed, Coordinator, Professional Development & Employer Relations

What the Students are saying:

  • Grambling State University – “Under the direction of Stacy Milner I have gained great insight on the “Reach One Teach One” notion, where a person or a group of people well off in their field, comes back, pulls, and teaches the younger generation the necessary tools for battle. Through the passion and expertise Mrs. Milner endures, it was because of her and the rest of her team that many of us were exposed to new avenues in life that we were once never aware of.” – Andrew L. Smith II

  • Spelman College – “I appreciated your very real approach, your life experiences, and most importantly, your faith in God, it felt like He has led you down such a fantastic path. As a graduating senior here at Spelman, watching you speak was like watching a mirror of myself that displayed the future.” – April Rushin

  • St. Augustine – “Thank you so much for sharing with us at St. Augustine! I was truly encouraged and inspired to continue pursuing a job in the film/television industry.” – Jessica Wright

  • Claflin University – “I was skeptical if an African-American could achieve what others have in the business, but your presentation has certainly reassured me that minorities can excel to the highest level in this industry.” – Jeremy, Claflin University

  • FAMU – “I wanted to thank you so much because you gave me hope and a path to follow.” – Tawana Thomas


What the Industry is saying:

  • CBS – “The workshop, panel discussion, and career fair, offered a rare opportunity for students and industry professionals to come together…. it’s been a positive and rewarding experience.” – Paul Diaz, Regional Human Resources Manager- CBS Radio

  • Turner – “Thank you for allowing me to participate and represent Turner. We are honored to be a part of such an important cause.” – Caron Cone, Director, Human Resources- Global Technology & Operations


Success Stories:

  • We were greeted by a group of talented students who had just completed the 125th Anniversary Edition of Florida A&M University’s campus magazine JOURNEY. The edition was entitled ““Black in America”. It was one of the most artistically creative covers I have ever seen by a student-run publication. Peter Moore, editor of Men’s Health had this to say about the issue, “You start flipping through these pages and suddenly you wonder if the whole thing might burst into flames, it’s so hot with strong opinion, smoky feelings, spark-throwing photography, and incendiary design.” We are proud to report that as a result of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation partnering in this important initiative; a team of student producers from Florida A & M University was selected as a nominee in the Magazine Show category for the 34th College TV Awards.”
