The Mission Continues: Annual Report to the President on the Results of Participation of Historically Black Colleges and Universities in Federal Programs. 2002-03
US Department of Education
From 1993-2002, federal support to Historically Black Colleges and Universities increased by $639 million, or 60 percent, while support for all institutions of higher education (IHEs) increased by 79 percent. The President's Advisory Board on HBCUs is concerned that federal support for HBCUs is not keeping pace with overall federal support for IHEs and that previous recommendations made in prior presidential advisory board reports have not been adequately addressed. This report includes seven recommendations designed to strengthen the implementation of Executive Order 13256 and provide increased federal support for the nation's HBCUs: (1) That the President expeditiously call an Interagency Summit of all covered agencies and departments for the purpose of showing his personal commitment to strengthening the implementation of Executive Order 13256; (2) That previous board recommendations be implemented, as articulated in board reports of 1996, 1999, and 2001-02; (3) That agencies and departments annual reporting be regularized and made timely; (4) That improved coordination between covered agencies and departments and the Office of Management and Budget be achieved in order that annual plans for assisting HBCUs are in fact reflected in the budget process; (5) That a uniform definition of "capacity-building" efforts be established and shared with all covered agencies and departments; (6) That the White House Initiative Office identify and share best practices for providing support to HBCUs with all covered agencies and departments; and (7) That the White House Initiative Office establish a process to annually report on the status of the implementation of recommendations from the President's Advisory Board on HBCUs. Eight appendices are included: (1) Abbreviations and Acronyms; (2) Federal HBCU Funding by Agency; (3) Comparison of HBCU Funding to Total IHE Funding; (4) Funding History of Historically White and Historically Black Land Grant Institutions; (5) Executive Order; (6) HBCUs (list of schools); (7) Recommendations from 2001-2002 Report; and (8) White House Initiative On HBCUs (Contains 15 footnotes and 5 figures.)
