TO BE ORDEVIAN YOU MUST DO SOMETHING THAT MATTERS
Rdevia has a membership network that spans over twenty states from the east to the west. Our HBCU Collegiate Ambassadors, HBCU Graduate Fellows, and HBCU Professional Gatekeepers are the top students, alumni, faculty, and staff of their institutions. We welcome the best of the best to join us in the fight for our HBCUs and the communities that need them.
Any current HBCU Student (undergrad or graduate level) or HBCU Graduate may be considered for membership. We employ a holistic admission process that requires candidates to submit a resume, attend an interview with the Grand Parliament, complete an application, and remit an assessment.
There are two ways to sign-up for the Ordevian Admission Process:
Preferred: Receive a nomination by a current Ordevian.
Alternative: Fill out an Interest Form and we will reach out.
There are many benefits to joining. The first is being able to network with the national and international champions who are part of Rdevia.
In addition to networking, Ordevians:
Receive discounts on car rentals through Avis.
Receive discounts to hotels through HotelEngine.
Receive professional coaching through Golden Goals.
Upon joining Rdevia, you will be sorted into an Ordevian Division (HBCU Collegiate Ambassador, HBCU Graduate Fellow, or HBCU Professional Gatekeeper). Once in your Division, you will join the #Fight4HBCUs by completing Yearly Goals and Objectives (YGOs) that focus on advancing our Just Cause: Education Access, Racial Equity, and Social Justice. Ordevians who successfully complete their YGOs are considered for awards, leadership positions, and special opportunities.
