Black Executive Exchange Program

"Scratch the surface of any major corporation or organization and you'll find a BEEPER."

Celebrating its 40th year, the Black Executive Exchange Program (BEEP) is a voluntary partnership between the National Urban League, corporate America, government, non-profits, and other institutions to loan African-American executives to participating colleges as "Visiting Professors." This unique program provides an opportunity for professionals and corporations to give back to their communities and help credentialed African-American college students achieve their goals.
BEEP’s mission is to share the learning experience across generations, cultivate new leaders, and inspire achievements “beyond the possible” through committed involvement and operational excellence. Visiting Professors lecture in credit-bearing courses that correspond to their industries and participate in other BEEP related activities such as networking sessions, workshops and mock job interviews.
BEEP is active at 84 four-year Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) and predominately black institutions, and prepares students to become the sophisticated and knowledgeable employees that corporate America and its global competitors are seeking. It exposes students to working professionals in their fields of interest and familiarizes them with the demands and expectations of those industries.
Created in 1969, it is longest-running program in Urban League history and has reached more than 900,000 students
