HBCUs Make America Strong: The Positive Economic Impact of Historically Black Colleges and Universities

Shows that the economic benefits of HBCUs extend beyond the students they educate. The study sets forth the benefits HBCUs produce in detailed, dollars-and-cents terms. It shows that money spent in, around, and by the nation’s HBCUs and their students drives economic growth both on and off campus—and that effect is multiplied over time. Each dollar spent creates far more than a dollar’s worth of productive activity as it moves through local, regional and national economies.
