THE ULTIMATE RESOURCE GUIDE TO OUR HBCUs is a college reference book that details the over 110 Historically Black Colleges and Universities in the United States and Virgin Islands. Each school featured has a listing of tuition, fees, athletic programs, accreditation, student life, history, financial aid and school mascots. High school and transferring students can use this guide to preview schools and plan campus visits. Black Colleges and Universities are symbols of excellence in education for African-Americans. Their strengths and stability account for the perpetual rise of intellectuals, professionals and creative artists so evident throughout Black communities and the American society at-large. Each institution will continue to play a leading role in the crusade for social change for people throughout the world.
