Research & Policy


The HBCU Center initiatives and programs will culminate in publications that identify, analyze, and inform our community and others of HBCU’s omnipresent role in the higher education landscape in the United States and beyond. The HBCU Center Research Repository will include publications, presentations, studies, and dissertations that document our work.

Policy Initiatives

Ensuring synergy between The HBCU Center’s work and current and future policy is a core priority.  Our policy initiatives include sponsoring strategic convenings, publishing policy briefs, conducting and disseminating empirical research to our communities, policy makers, and higher education professionals, and creating opportunities for institutional collaboration.
