Understanding HBCU Retention and Completion: UNCF-Member Institution Supplement
Richards, D. A. R.
Frederick D. Patterson Research Institute, UNCF
This supplement to our 2012 report (see ED562057) on historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) retention and graduation rates narrows that report's focus to UNCF's member institutions, and shows that these private HBCUs retain and graduate students at rates competitive with other postsecondary institutions. These schools perform especially well at the graduation of Black and African American students, a population central to their historical mission and essential to the nation's global competitiveness. An appendix contains the methodology.
