We believe Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) should be the first choice of college-bound Black youth.
HBCUs consistently outperform non-HBCUs in student experience, affordability, and after college preparedness for Black students.Better Experiences.
HBCUs provide students something they can't get anywhere else — a diverse & inclusive community of scholarship that celebrates the richness of the entire
American experience. The 170+ years of success by HBCUs is driven by a visceral promise of support1
