Topic: HBCUs & MSIs
The South is home to 90% of the nation’s historically Black colleges and universities, which share a distinct mission but are far from monolithic. Public and private, large and small, famous or well-kept secret, they face a wide range of issues.
SREB supports HBCUs and other minority-serving institutions by helping them share resources, build capacity and reaffirm their value to students and communities.
The HBCU-MSI Collaborative builds strategic partnerships with historically Black colleges and universities and other minority-serving institutions to increase equity and access in higher education throughout the 16-state region. Working with state agencies, education leaders and philanthropic organizations, this SREB group pursues ways to increase capacity and competitiveness among these institutions.
The SREB HBCU-MSI Course-Sharing Consortium is an innovative collaboration that connects students in historically Black colleges and universities and other minority-serving institutions with a wider variety of online courses.
Designed to help more students graduate on time, the course-sharing consortium emerged from the SREB HBCU-MSI Collaborative, which fosters partnerships to increase capacity and improve student success in like-minded institutions.
