is in 2020. Technology dominates at the highest level. Adam West is a great American hero. Western is young, mobile and intuitive. The scientific mind has unlimited potential. Many wonder that such an intellectuals can come from a heritage academy, a descendant of historically black colleges. West understands the reason. His roots came from.
We came here everywhere. We arrived in Washington. Shocking culture was a shock. 1% black population. Our recruits celebrated us. Yet some of us are afraid of us. We were young, energetic and confident. The urban legends, however, continued to survive. They were not smart enough or good enough to be there. Some black elitists who welcomed us from white institutions disdained us. Nevertheless, he succeeded in this situation. I studied adaptability as a South student. In fact, we have an unspecified mandate to be the best in our area. According to the students of various higher education institutions, I look at the future of black colleges. Let's examine this matter closely.
There are currently only 105 historically black colleges and universities (HBCU). According to a study, only 3% of HBCUs are among the nation's education institutions, but 24% of American black students are starting to do so. The main mission is to teach black students. According to the United Negro College Fund, more than half of the black professions are HBCU graduates. Nine of the top ten, who are Black PhD graduates, HBCUs. Tennessee State University (TSU) is the first institution to produce black maturity diplomas in agricultural areas. National rankings praise HBCUs like Spellman College. HBCU graduates include Oprah Winfrey (TSU), Martin Luther King Jr. (Morehouse), Alex Haley (Alcorn State), Jerry Rice (Mississippi Valley), P. Diddy (Howard) and Thurgood Marshall (Lincoln). Some HBCUs initiated by American isolated practices were burdened with poor management, declining enrollment, humiliation, inappropriate funding, lack of alumni support, and lack of clear vision.
The Real Thing
Demographic shifts transform our society from an assimilation to a multicultural society. According to the US census, whites account for almost 50 percent of the future population. If students go to school without diversity, will they have a future disadvantage? Surprisingly, HBCUs & # 39; the population becomes more and more varied. National white enrollment for HBCUs has increased by about 30 percent over the last few decades. Bluefield State, HBCU, is predominantly white (91%). The reason why students choose HBCUs is simple. Students now realize HBCUs are less expensive, smaller classrooms, and a good education.
Since companies exist in hypercompetition, can we afford to leave behind anyone? Knoxville needs future workers. Future HBCUs may be catalysts. Researchers Jorge Jeria and Gener Roth claim that black students in HBCUs are more likely to graduate than those attending mostly white institutions. I teach multicultural students from Knoxville College (KC) professors from areas such as South America, Japan and Africa. Well-trained trainers and staff. There are many urgent questions that KC provides for personal and relevant learning. It is a fact that small schools can serve as a model for future academic institutions. Today's students want an intimate and interesting environment, not sterile. If HBCUs want to survive, they need to have global ideas with key alliances. Vanderbilt University and the TSU, for example, have a strategic relationship. There are other similar solutions as well. Darwinism will continue to exist. Adaptive HBCUs will survive. But those who fail to exist in the haunt of Black History. It is obvious that globalization will awaken us all of our social dissatisfaction. I pray it's not too late.
