Gender Disparities at Historically Black Colleges and Universities
Gasman, Marybeth; Abiola, Ufuoma; Freeman, Ashley
Higher Education Review, v47 n1 p56-76 Aut 2014
Gender disparities are shaping the overall climate at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The significant gap between women and men at HBCUs has created some fascinating dynamics on these campuses. The objective of this paper is to focus on the consequences of the gender disparity dynamic on HBCU campuses. This paper presents descriptive statistics detailing the changes in gender on HBCU campuses between 1992 and 2009; discusses the effects of gender disparities on the personal relationships between students and professional relationships with faculty; explores how some institutions, such as Central State University and Saint Augustine's College, have kept their gender ratio at roughly 50 per cent; and recommends ways to recruit and retain Black male and female students at HBCUs.
