HBCUs: AN OVERVIEW

Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) are inclusive institutions of higher learning that were established before the mid-20th century, in direct response to the refusal of Black intellectuals to Predominantly White Institutions (PWIs) in the United States. Instead of acquiescing, leaders banded together to serve the Black community.

To this day, HBCUs have an unmatched commitment to (primarily) serving underserved and underrepresented minorities. While most HBCUs are majority Black, HBCUs offer exposure to students all around the globe, from every continent.
