Enrollments surge at historically black colleges amid rise in racial tensions Posted on 09-12-2016

"...The past year has been a great reminder for families as they prepare to select a college. Ask yourself what is important to you, and then find an institution that is a great fit for you. If learning from Black faculty is important, going to a place where they are less than 5 percent makes little sense. If a curriculum that uses diverse points of view is a factor, attending an institution driven by the Great Books will create disappointment. If having a residential experience with students who look like you is important, attending a school where you see more Black students on brochures than on a campus tour is a recipe for problems.

 

As a graduate of three predominantly white universities I still believe Black students can thrive there, but only if they accept them for what they are and not some fantasy..."
