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: 

*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.
