Colleges and Universities Must Not Rest On Their Laurels

June 2009
Diverse: Issues in Higher Education;6/11/2009, Vol. 26 Issue 9, p66
The author states that colleges accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, 82 of which are historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), have gone through a rigorous accreditation process. She argues that this establishes that those HCBUs are the educational equal of any other school in the association. She states the importance of HBCUs publicizing this fact and publicizing its graduates and what they have achieved.
