The Digital Learning Lab's HBCU Manifesto

Last updated: Monday 2/19/15

This manifesto poses some "inconvenient" answers to "inconvenient" questions.

Answer 1a ...  All 107 HBCUs, like all colleges and universities, will always be needed by their local stakeholders, i.e., by their students, faculty, staff, administrators, alums, etc. Currently enrolled students need their HBCUs in order to complete their graduation requirements; faculty, staff, and administrators need their jobs; alums need their alma maters as references for jobs and for admission to other higher ed programs; and local communities need their HBCU contributions to the local economy.

HBCUs' Online & Blended Degree Programs -- 2013

DLL Editor's Caveat -- The 2013 report is obsolete because it is based on obsolete 2013 data. Readers are therefore referred to the HBCUs -- Online and Blended Degree Programs -- 2014 report that is based on the DLL's 2014 survey. The 2013 report has therefore been removed from this blog until further notice.
