Historically Black Colleges and Universities


Background and Summary


Historically Black colleges and universities or HBCUs are institutions of higher education in the United States that were established before 1964 with the intention of serving the Black community. They are often liberal arts colleges or universities.


There are 114 historically Black colleges in the United States today, including two-year and four-year institutions, both public and private. Most are located in the Southeastern United States. Four are located in the Midwest states, and at least three are in the Eastern U.S.: two in Pennsylvania and one in Delaware. There is also one school located in the U.S. Virgin Islands.


Other educational institutions have large numbers of African Americans in their student body, but were founded or opened their doors to Blacks only after the Brown v. Board of Education ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court. The court decision outlawed racial segregation of public education facilities. By definition, that does not make such schools historically Black colleges, but simply public institutions that are open to all students. Such institutions have been termed predominantly Black. HBCU campuses are populated mainly by students of color, however, any person, regardless of his or her ethnicity, may attend.
