What are HBCUs?
Joan Isaac Mohr
Vice President and Dean of Admissions
HBCUs are Historically Black Colleges and Universities. There are 105 schools in 22 states. They can either be a community college or a four-year college. Some are public, some are private. They were established before 1964 with the mission of serving the black community, and African American students currently make up a portion of their enrollment. You can learn more by searching the Web and learning more about the specific list of institutions.
