Title:Students speak! Understanding the value of HBCUs from student perspectives
Organization:Frederick D. Patterson Research Institute
Short Description:This report highlights students’ perspectives on their experiences on historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).
Annotation:As higher education institutions continue to grapple with the challenge of demonstrating their value in the face of increased pressure to attract, support, and graduate their students, it is important to understand student perspectives; that is, what students themselves say they value in institutions of higher learning. This need to understand the student perspective is true for all institutions—not just historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). Students Speak! is timely in many ways because it provides a window into what students who are currently attending private HBCUs1 have to say about why they chose their respective institutions and what they have valued most about their experiences on these campuses.
