Predominately black and 'Historically Black' are not the same! There are colleges that happen to have a whole lot of black folks enrolled that will never be a HBCU (Historically Black Institution).
If the school was founded back in the day with the objective of the education of black people, it is Historically black. A school can have high black enrollment due to regional demographics, recruitment blacks, have a black president with highblack enrollment,etc andnot be a HBCU.

University 101 i wish we had that, most of my classmate couldnt tell you one lick about the history of the UWI (one army barrack) or the founding fathers and the obstacles and racism faced from the ENglish (wealthy black/browns sent their children abroad to England to study). They called it a Calypso Uni/Law school.

Hampton is private but still receives ext. funding incl govt. funds? the opposite of private is non-private/semi-private?

Glam and BB what methods have been found to be the most effective at getting alumni to donate?

What is the attitude on the ground towards Yts and non-blacks? annoyance? inclusion? no effs?

*Most public & private schools receivea mix of corporate & gvmt funds somehow & somewhere.
*The purpose of the article is to say that none knows how to effectively get alumni to give back. That is why so many schools are in financial crisis. No one knows and the schools are collapsing. Old people tend to give back, middle age and young people do not and the contributions of 80 year olds are not enough to carry these institutions forward. No one knows.

Yeah, the HBCU label only applies to a small sector of schools in USA and a USA territory.

The last time I went to UNCF board of trustees meeting, they said that the majority of HBCUs were staying afloat by implementing their affirmative action policies and funding more non-black students' educations. With all of the gripes that whites and Asians have regarding affirmative action, I can see many HBCUs tipping towards nonblacks being >50% in the not-too-distant future.
 
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.

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
 
Thank you, NJ!
 
Many HBCUs are in or have been in danger at some point of merging, closing down or losing accreditation due to low funding, misappropriated funds, etc. In order to stay afloat, they receive subsidies from the federal and/or state governments which require a certain percentage of "diversity," meaning a school receiving government funds cannot be an all-black institution.
 
Often non-black students receive diversity, athletic or merit scholarships to lure them to come and to stay. Meanwhile, many black students, at historically black colleges and universities, have to fight financial aid offices and borrow out of house and home in order to stay in school (which, unfortunately is the case for many students at colleges across the board). However, larger endowments funded by alumni and private donors would allow more freedom to maintain the integrity of these schools' original purposes: to educate and empower our people.
