Black Colleges: New Perspectives on Policy and Practice


Black colleges are central to the delivery of higher education. Notwithstanding, there is scant treatment of these key institutions in the research literature. There is a need for a comprehensive and cogent understanding of the primary characteristics of the policies and practices endemic to black colleges. This book provides the scholarly basis requisite to organize, give meaning to, and shape the analyses and applications of policy and practice within the black college. The collected chapters respond to the paucity of research literature adressing these institutions. In each chapter, the authors acknowledge the specific characteristics of black colleges that make them unique.
