Minority Serving Institutions Initiative Coffee Chat Series: Complicating the Black Student Experiences at Historically Black Colleges and Universities

April 20 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Drawing from findings from a national study involving four HBCUs of different sizes, designations, and mission statements and 80 students, this presentation will discuss the importance of looking at the within-group differences among Black students at HBCUs. Findings that will center this presentation emerged from a larger qualitative study that sought to understand how the political climate encouraged Black students to apply and attend HBCUs. In alignment with the inductive approach of qualitative research, one of the themes that emerged from this study underscored how the HBCU environment facilitated Black students learning about the diversity within the Black community. Conversely, findings also indicated how differences among Black students on HBCU campuses led to exclusion, isolation, and cultural alienation for some students. This presentation will conclude with implications for practice and research for HBCUs and possibly MSIs in general.
