Traditionally Black Institutions of Higher Education: Their Identification and Selected Characteristics.
Turner, William H.; Michael, John A.
The 106 traditionally black institutions are identified, the procedures for classifying them are explained, and descriptive information is provided for each of them. Institutions were chosen for inclusion based upon whether they were historically black institutions. Three of the institutions are currently majority-white student bodies: Bluefield State College (West Virginia), Lincoln University (Missouri), and West Virginia State College. The listing by state includes the location, year established, control, type (two or four-year), 1976 fall enrollment (by percentage black, sex, and attendance status), first-time freshmen enrollment, and the name of the chief executive officer. The findings include: the 1976 enrollment for the institutions totalled 212,118. Publicly controlled institutions enrolled the great majority compared with private institutions even though there are more private than public institutions. Institutions in North Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, and Texas enrolled the largest numbers of students. Only 16 of the 106 institutions were two-year institutions, and 11 of these were privately controlled. Nearly 88 percent of the students enrolled in the traditionally black institutions were black.
