Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) are described by the Higher Education Act of 1965 as, “…any historically black college or university that was established prior to 1964, whose principal mission was, and is, the education of black Americans, and that is accredited by a nationally recognized accrediting agency or association determined by the Secretary [of Education]…” Currently, there are 101 HBCUs that offer doctoral, masters, and undergraduate degrees. However, the perceptions of HBCUs and resulting experiences in sport, education, and beyond are often undervalued or misrepresented. Thus, the purpose of this roundtable discussion session is to examine the state of HBCUs (to include successes and challenges) for faculty and students through the relevance of sport.
