The HBCU Resource Guide

In Title III of the Higher Education Act of 1965, Congress officially defined an HBCU as a school of higher learning that was accredited and established before 1964, and whose principal mission was the education of African Americans. HBCUs offer a rigorous academic learning environment, innovative programs for students, culturally relevant curricula and activities, and a welcoming environment for all students.
They prepare students of all races for leadership and life after graduation.
