About Latimer Education
Latimer Education is an education management company that works with Black colleges and universities to help expand their reach and compete effectively by increasing access to their quality programs. Latimer Education, Inc. was founded in 2009 by a group of African-American entrepreneurs.
Further, given the significant percentage of online adult students who are Black, it was felt that institutions that had historically served the needs of Black students (such as HBCUs) should have a greater presence and representation in the marketplace for online education. Latimer was created to serve as a bridge between those institutions and those students who may wish to attend these institutions through the delivery of high quality, online educational services.
From day one, our focus has been to partner with existing colleges and universities which have historically served the needs of Black students. We provide those institutions with the expertise, resources and support to leverage their ground-based programs into the online marketplace. We are selective and believe that scale opportunities exist only for those institutions that have the right vision, leadership and internal support mechanisms to ensure success.
