HBCU

If you don’t know…

you better ask somebody!

We’ve got many more stories, features and surprises on the HBCU experience coming soon:

  • Student applications at historically black colleges and universities are breaking records. Is it because of a growing discontent among black students at predominantly white institutions?
  • While the NCAA’s Academic Progress Rate at HBCUs continue to improve, there are schools and teams that are still significantly behind when their progress is measured against PWIs. In April, seven programs were suspended from postseason play. Why? Where do things stand now, and what’s being done to improve these limited-resourced schools.
  • The color of HBCU baseball teams is decidedly white. In fact, many black colleges have more white players than blacks, including Alabama State, which just won the SWAC regular-season title. What’s going on?
  • Did you know Alabama has more historically black colleges and universities than any other state? Find out how many there are and elsewhere, including other fun facts about HBCUs.
  • Much more coverage of Undefeated happenings on HBCU campuses including, of course, the marching bands, the Air Force Reserve Celebration Bowl, trends in the classroom and breaking news.
