Arroyo, Andrew T.; Palmer, Robert T.; Maramba, Dina C.; Louis, Dave A.
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v54 n2 p150-162 2017
While research has shown that the racial diversity of historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) is increasing, the efforts of student affairs professionals to foster racial inclusivity are under examined. This case study discusses findings from student affairs professionals at one HBCU to understand what they are doing to foster a supportive environment for non-Black students. Findings presented in this article are critical as HBCUs seek to increase the racial diversity of their student bodies.
