President Obama Signs Executive Order Recognizing HBCU's

HBCU were founded by visionaries for the advancement of black people. These schools were founded and established, because white America didn't want black people to attend their colleges. With the commitment of several scholars, professors, visionaries, and support, these schools show what America can be to anyone with a vision, a passion, and a dream.

This event event demonstrates the Obama’s strong appreciation for the historic role these institutions have played in educating our citizens and the Administration’s commitment to assisting HBCUs with accomplishing their mission.
Historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) have made historic and ongoing contributions to the general welfare and prosperity of our country. Established by visionary leaders, America’s HBCUs have, for over 150 years, produced many of the Nation’s leaders in business, government, academia, and the military and have provided generations of American men and women with hope and educational opportunity.
