UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
LISTS OF POSTSECONDARY INSTITUTIONS ENROLLING POPULATIONS
WITH SIGNIFICANT PERCENTAGES OF MINORITY STUDENTS
PREDOMINANTLY BLACK INSTITUTIONS. This is a list of the colleges and universities to which the Department’s Office of Postsecondary Education (OPE) recently has given grants as Predominantly Black Institutions (PBIs) under Title III of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA). To be eligible for grants under Title III, each college and university attested that it met the HEA’s definition of “Predominantly Black Institutions” and self-certified that it met the conditions of eligibility.
The list does not include colleges and universities that did not apply for, or that did not receive, competitive Department grants for Predominantly Black Institutions. Thus, the list is not necessarily a complete list of colleges and universities meeting the HEA’s definition of Predominantly Black Institutions. Federal agencies and others with an interest in colleges or universities not appearing on this list should obtain or confirm information regarding their enrollment of black students, and/or their eligibility for a specific grant, contract, or benefit program, directly with those institutions.
The HEA’s definition of “Predominantly Black Institutions” can be found in Section 318(b) of the Higher Education Act of 1965, 20 U.S.C. 1059e. This can be found on-line at the website of the Department’s Office of Postsecondary Education (HEA Definition). [Note to the reader: You may find the PDF version particularly helpful in accessing the definition.]
