Perceptions of African American Educators toward Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
Frierson, Cynthia L.
The attitudes of African American educators toward historically black colleges and universities (HBCU) were studied, focusing on the degree of support for HBCU, the perception that HBCU meet the needs of African American students, whether non-Blacks should attend HBCU, and why African Americans should choose them. The sample consisted of 30 African American educators teaching at universities and colleges. Respondents exhibited positive attitudes toward HBCU. Thirty-two percent had direct experience with a black college as a student or teacher, and 89 percent had indirect knowledge or exposure through friends or family members. The sample saw many advantages for African American students at HBCU, and all felt that they could recommend HBCU. Most (86.5 percent) supported continued integration at HBCU. Respondents did not feel that HBCU isolate students from mainstream institutions or society. (Contains 18 references.) (SLD)
