To The Top
Founded in 1976, the National Name Exchange (NNE) is a consortium of fifty-five nationally-known universities that annually collect and exchange the names of their talented and underrepresented ethnic minority students who are in their sophomore, junior, or senior year of their undergraduate education.
The purpose of the Exchange is to ensure that participating universities continue to identify a pool of qualified students who could be recruited to graduate programs at these institutions. The consortium of universities conducts other activities consistent with the national efforts to increase the enrollment of traditionally underrepresented students in graduate education.
