September 1, 2019

For this report, we surveyed selected HBCUs and HBCU-adjacent school districts to help state higher education executives and nongovernmental organizations understand what drives successful teacher preparation at HBCUs.

It is a research-based strategy that also responds to states' needs to address escalating teacher shortages and gaps in student achievement. Researchers and practitioners continue to highlight the critical importance of a racially diverse teaching force in American schools, particularly for minority students confronted with the challenges of growing up amidst poverty and institutional bias. Schools with diverse teachers support the intellectual and social development of African American and Latino students, as well as non-minority students who face an increasingly diverse world.
