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

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.

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

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.
