About this item

International contributors in higher education, student affairs, teaching, student retention, and education policy issue a call to action for historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). The book begins with an overview of strengths and weaknesses of existing retention strategies directed toward black students, then offers ideas, frameworks, and cases for student engagement, retention, persistence, and success. Some areas discussed include the first-year experience, HBCU writing centers, HBCU-based learning communities, strategies for HBCUs to increase undergraduates in STEM and medicine, and technology and the HBCU. There are also ideas on how to strengthen engagement for white students in African America history courses, and how to prepare African American males for careers in information technology and computer science.
