Moving Upward and Onward
Income Mobility at Historically Black Colleges and Universities

January 21, 2020
2 to 3 pm Eastern 

Register for the webinar

This webinar will discuss the unique learning environment of historically black colleges and universities and the value of these institutions to both students and to the field of postsecondary education. Robert Nathanson of the American Institutes for Research will provide an overview of research on how predominantly white institutions and historically black institutions impact their graduates’ economic mobility. Nathanson’s 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 the findings, as well as how all postsecondary institutions can work to improve the economic mobility of their graduates, will be discussed.
