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.

Recent research demonstrates higher levels of college-knowledge, and a higher likelihood of having conversations with school personnel about college for middle school students who experienced a campus tour.  Given the importance of a campus tour and connections to campus personnel to ensure proper college match and fit, it is essential students explore as many campuses as possible.  The challenge is time and distance.  Virtual reality (VR) and artificial intelligence (AI) can address these challenges.
