A Snapshot of African Americans in Higher Education. Mini Brief
Institute for Higher Education Policy
In recognition of national African-American History Month, the Institute for Higher Education Policy wishes to highlight the trends and present-day experiences of African-American college students. Recognizing that the society benefits tremendously from an educated citizenry, there must be a renewed commitment to ensuring educational opportunity, particularly for those students for whom opportunity has been elusive. This paper presents an overview of facts and trends highlighting the postsecondary experiences and educational opportunities of African Americans. This brief is not a comprehensive listing, but it is hoped that it provides additional context for understanding some of the lingering challenges impeding the educational progress of African Americans.
