I think at least half of Howard U students don't know how they're going to pay for their next semester, yet so many non-black students educations are fully or at least 85% funded.
 
A lot has to change.

Yes, I remember 20 years ago when, my college president informed us that there would be a shift to diversify to receive more funding. We all were shocked that it was necessary, but I now understand. When I look at the spreadsheets that show alumni giving, it is very hard to understand why people that have the means to donate (even $25 a year) and boast about what their school did for them do not donate. All 6 of my grandmother's children attended HBCUs, most of my cousins and close friends have at least 1 degree from an HBCU and 5 of my cousins graduated from the same school that I did. It very serious matter when you hear today's youth say 'I went to xyz HBCU for a semester, but I couldnt afford to stay'. Now that I am 40, a lot of my peers have children that are enrolling in college in the fall and the struggle for tuition is real. We have to help our youth by giving back to the schools.

hey Mrs B. im not understanding what's happening, break it down for me please. how, why does this help the bottom line in the long run.

Could i get a list of all the HBCUs and location please or at least the top 7 Moorhouse, spelman, howard, is there also a Hampton?

*In a nutshell, if you diversify the HBCU, you get more government & corporate funding.

*If you click on the link in the OP, at the bottom, there is a link that shows a list of all of the HBCU institutions BUT here is the link (There are a whole lot of schools)Smile: http://www.nhbcuaa.org/hbcuList.php 

*Yes, Diane-boo, ya gal is a Hampton LadyBig smileStarBig smile

UVA would have been cheaper for me

When i read the article i thought of you lolololol  the same part you had an issue with.

Is this related to the amt of funding then, generally less funding = higher tuition. 

I went to an HBCU (it had to be) in Jamaica but all of them were coonsCryCry and ______s.

Yes - There are low/mid/high cost HBCUs and PWIs, BUT most of the very expensive PWI are astronomically more than the HBCUs that are viewed as very expensive.

Hampton is private

I don't know why it is, but it is

I'm sure they went over it in University 101, but I took that class 14 years ago

I think that has something to do with the funding there

Its private because it was established by a person, not the state and the way that it is filed has not changed.
