HBCUs may be more in danger of closing than other schools - Business Insider

HBCU graduates don't support HBCUs enough. Do they not value their experience there and regret their decision to limit themselves there or did their college experience fail to open lucrative careers which would allow them to give back?

Quote:
HBCUs struggle often struggle because they have fewer resources than other colleges — typically due to lower endowments and less money coming in from alumni giving, according to Gasman.

Gasman highlighted Spelman College, an all-women's school that has an 86% graduation rate and is one of the strongest black colleges, but still can't compete financially with a predominately white institution (PWI).

"Even though they have a nearly 50% alumni giving rate, Spelman still doesn't have the same resources of a Wellesley or a Bryn Mawr," she said.

It has a lot to do with the Racial Wealth Gap

I think this is a very interesting statement. Im always curious about how much money the students are able to earn after leaving an HBCUs versus PWIs. Its seems like that question always has a hidden or tricky answer. Im still curious though.

If I was black and able. I'd send my kid to Emory for any pre-law track. This is coming from a soon to be UGA alumnus btw.
Why didnt you go to Emory?

HBCU graduates, and Black graduates in general, often don't come from wealthy families unlike graduates from the Seven Sisters schools. They (we) typically make less than White college graduates, have more to pay back in student loans, and are more likely to provide financial assistance to other family members.
