A call for equity in Black and African American representation in the eye care industry. For those willing to commit to the pledge, BEP will provide resources and accountability to help achieve and reach targeted goals.


We are targeting the black community to raise awareness of optometry and recruit students to directly impact our 13% Promise-equity in the eye care industry to match the current census population. IMPACT HBCU is a collection of HBCU campus based initiatives to create more awareness and black representation in eye care.

Signing Day

We will celebrate the achievements of BEPPOC members who have been accepted into optometry school as well as recognize any student who will be a part of the class of 2025.
