Abstract

This article examines the contributions of Historically Black Colleges and Universities in improving the achievement of Black students in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields. We couple recent descriptive statistics with an extensive review of the literature to elucidate the conditions and best practices, which exist at many HBCUs and characterize these institutions as models for majority institutions for the support of all Black and other racial minority students. We conclude with a discussion and recommendations.
