3 Interesting Charts from the UPenn Study on HBCUs

hbcu2

A new study by University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education called The Changing Face of Historically Black Colleges and Universities features several interesting charts. The report was released on May 9.  The entire study can be seen here http://www.gse.upenn.edu/pdf/cmsi/Changing_Face_HBCUs.pdf

There are several good charts that make up the study. Chart one shows the gap in endowments between HBCUs and other colleges and universities. The issue has always been a problem for HBCUs. When John Wilson (who is now the President of Morehouse) was at the White House as head of the HBCU initiative, he talked a lot on the endowment problem and advocated for all HBCU grads to donate money to their HBCUs.

Chart two shows the graduation rates at HBCUs which has also been an issue.  Chart three shows the gender gap at HBCUs.  There is also a chart on the top ten schools that have gender parity.
