Description via SREB Go Alliance:

In this webinar, presenters will discuss the unique learning environment of historically black colleges and universities and the value of these institutions to both students and to the field of postsecondary education.

Presenters will provide an overview of their research on how predominantly white institutions and historically black institutions impact their graduates’ economic mobility. Their recent study compared the income of recent college graduates to parents’ incomes and found that HBCUs do a better job of helping low-income students progress into the middle class. Results showed that nearly 70% of HBCU students attain at least middle-class incomes, and most low-income HBCU students improve their long-term economic position. Reasons for the findings, as well as how all postsecondary institutions can work to improve the economic mobility of their graduates, will be discussed.
