Since their founding, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have proven that institutions built with Black learners at the center can lead to extraordinary results of students. According to UNCF, HBCU’s represent just 3 percent of colleges and universities in the U.S. but produce 20 percent of Black graduates. And they do this in the face of long odds, having to overcome systemic injustices that leave them with far fewer resources than non-HBCUs. Their success is a model for innovative, student-centered success that deserves broader recognition.
