Register for the webinar

Presenters from American Institutes of Research and Rutgers University will discuss the value of historically black colleges and universities to both students and to the field of postsecondary education. Presenters will provide an overview of their research on how predominantly white institutions and HBCUs impact graduates’ economic mobility. Their recent study compared the income of recent college graduates to parents’ incomes and found that HBCUs do a better job of helping low-income students progress into the middle class. Results showed that nearly 70% of HBCU students attain at least middle-class incomes, and most low-income HBCU students improve their long-term economic position. Reasons for their findings, as well as how all postsecondary institutions can work to improve the economic mobility of their graduates, will be discussed.


Uncommon Degrees, Unusual Opportunities
Academic Common Market

SREB’s Academic Common Market is a hub for states, universities and college students to share access to uncommon degree programs. Students whose states don’t offer the degree they want may find the program in another SREB state and be eligible to attend at in-state tuition rates.

This brochure outlines what the Academic Common Market is, what it isn’t, and how to determine eligibility.

We invite all program alumni and constituents to help raise $30,000 by December 31, 2020.
