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.
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.

In honor of the program’s dedication to being “more than a check and a handshake” to Ph.D. scholars and over 1,000 graduates, we’ve established the 2020 Campaign. We invite all program alumni and constituents to help raise $30,000 by December 31, 2020. If we make our goal, a donor has graciously offered to match with another $30,000. All funds raised will go to support the program’s professional development and service grant funds.
Every penny goes to support scholars and graduates like yourself, and all donations are tax-deductible.
