In 1971, noted scholar Dr. Samuel M. Nabrit observed, "Most (black) institutions are currently experiencing operating deficits or are siphoning off from their endowments in order to balance their budgets. Few are hardnosed enough to curtail programs and make budgetary cuts in order to live with their income. . . . Many colleges eliminate small classes; they do not understand the principles of economy of size and are bewildered by the requirements of larger enrollments. . . . The management in some of the institutions is below any good standard of acceptance." Though many years have passed, Nabrit's reflections are as true today as they were a generation ago. And despite being "birthplaces of liberation movements, legal battles, and the student sit-ins of 1960s," today's historically black colleges and universities also face a new wave of pressures, including economic challenges, growing affirmative action debates in admission policies, and accreditation issues. And yet, the history, legacy, and accomplishments of HBCUs cannot and should not be forgotten: These institutions have faced and overcome numerous hurdles over the past 150 years and can provide lessons to both minority-serving and majority institutions. This book examines each of these issues in considerable detail.
