About the Founder & CEO
Tamice Spencer-Helms graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2006. She has since been in the non-profit sector, serving thousands of young adults and college students.
Tamice is a thought-leader in culturally relevant and critically conscious campus engagement among Black College students. She co-founded an Atlanta-based collective of likeminded HBCU campus practitioners called the Kingdom Collaborative and planted six student-led chapters on HBCU campuses in the southeast. She has also served as Senior Director of Student Leadership & Engagement at Virginia Union University, where she also taught courses in religious studies. Currently, she trains youth mentors in diversity, equity, and inclusion.
In addition to her Bachelor’s degree in Religious Studies and Copywriting, Tamice has a Masters of Arts in Contextual Leadership and a Masters of Arts in Theology.
Tamice has effectively turned her years of service, love for education, and university campus experience and leadership into a non-profit organization of her own design. Sub:Culture Incorporated is a nonprofit that provides holistic support and crisis relief for Black College students and others navigating the university campus with marginalized identities.
In her free time Tamice enjoys discussing hip-hop, reading, writing, watching documentaries, singing with her daughter, and eating her partner's homemade pizza. She is set to release her first book in 2023.
To develop resources, curate content, and provide crisis relief that will remove the barriers impeding Black College Students from academic success, holistic well-being, and social flourishing.

From our Student Transition & Relief Fund to our consulting services, we are committed to excellence, hospitality, and kindness that makes and holds space for those with marginalized experiences or identites.
