Why Choose an HBCU?
We believe Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) should be the first
choice of college-bound Black Americans. HBCUs consistently outperform predominantly white institutions (PWIs) 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
to all students. HBCUs offer a safe and nurturing environment for everyone2
