Historically black colleges and universities have an excellent academic track record, as these numbers show:
While only about 17 percent of black undergraduate students attend a historically black college and university,
over 28 percent of African-Americans who receive bachelor’s degrees obtain them from a historically black college or university.
These colleges and universities are also leading institutions in awarding bachelor’s degrees to black students
in the life sciences, physical sciences, mathematics and engineering.
And, thanks to an agreement signed March 17, 2015 between the California Community Colleges and
nine historically black colleges and universities, California community college students who complete
certain academic requirements are now guaranteed transfer to a participating historically
black college and university campus.
We We hope you find these materials helpful in promoting and explaining this valuable opportunity to your students.
