Historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) are a unique feature of the US education system. The United States encompasses a diverse collection of people, and the history of the country tells of many struggles--for independence, respect and freedom. The development of what are now known as historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) was a response to one such struggle.
Before the Civil War, there were only 2 higher education institutions established for black students, and before 1964 black students were mostly excluded from higher education at predominantly white universities and colleges. Today, there are over 100 historically black colleges and universities in the United States, including public and private, four- and two-year institutions. Admission to these colleges--like all in the US--is not restricted to any one group of people, although many HBCUs continually aim to implement programs focused on the needs of students who have had limited access to education. HBCUs welcome international applicants and offer many of the same undergraduate and graduate programs as other schools, providing world-class teaching and research grounded in core values such as inclusiveness, scholarship, diversity, leadership, and service.
