HBCUs (short for historically Black colleges and universities) were first established in the mid-19th century with a very narrow goal—to provide advanced education to African-American students who were, at the time, barred from entry into most existing universities and colleges.

Though these barriers have since been removed, HBCUs still represent a crucial part of the U.S. higher education system, especially for Black and ethnic minority students. HBCUs focus on offering an education to groups that can find it difficult to afford the cost of historically White colleges and universities. But they also represent an increasingly popular choice for wealthier Black and minority-group students and White students, due to their unique culture and the values they represent.

Key Takeaways

(1) HBCUs, or historically Black colleges and universities, were set up to provide Black people in the U.S. with a way to gain a higher education.

(2) These colleges and universities have helped to improve equality in the nation.

(3) Today, attending an HBCU offers many advantages for Black and non-minority students alike.
