Why Attend an HBCU?
Historically Black Colleges and Universities face the usual challenges just like other institutions, such as financial difficulties, leadership, enrollment and retention rates. Even amid such challenges, a new study reveals that HBCU grads are faring much better than their non-HBCU counterparts in multiple areas of life, including their financial and purpose well-being.
Are There Benefits?
• HBCU provide an nourishing environment that encourages self purpose and financial well-being.
• College experiences can be much more all-around rewarding for HBCU students.
• Most HBCU grads strongly agree they received more support.
• HBCU grads are enthusiastically involved in applied internships, long-term projects and extracurricular activities.
• They are among the leaders in STEM programs (see STEM)
Making the "Cut"
When choosing a college, making decisions about environment and traditions can play a big part in helping students to find their ideal college.
The numbers of African-American students at HBCU colleges are increasing overall.
