Historically Black Colleges Seek Path Forward in Tighter US College Market
 

As Lee and Kaleem explain, “Desegregation, along with a more recent push for diverse recruits among non-HBCUs and growing incomes among black families, has made historically black colleges and universities a less common option for African Americans.” They add, “Fifty years ago, 90 percent of black postsecondary students attended historically black schools. In 1990, it was close to 17 percent. Today, around nine percent do.” These numbers are less dire than they sound because of the longtime university enrollment boom. Even as the “market share” of HBCUs declined, their total enrollment continued to climb. National enrollment at HBCUs peaked in 2010 at about 326,000 students, a year in which total US collegiate enrollment (including two-year schools) was 21 million.
