|Author: ||Smith-Ross, Camacia|
Dr. Smith-Ross, the editor, and her colleagues use the nine essays in this book to suggest ways to renew Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The authors are scholars, teachers, and administrators bringing their knowledge and experience to renew these American historical educational institutions.
"Over the years, there have been many articles and books written about Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
This book, on sustaining Historically Black Colleges and Universities to build on the legacy of student Success, is yet
another treatise on this very important topic. However, this book takes a perspective that is student-centered. Over the nine chapters herein, readers will be introduced to concepts that lend themselves to ways of sustaining Historically Black Colleges and Universities with a focus on student success; including adequate funding, claiming identity, research and development, faculty development, Board accountability, coaches influence, interdisciplinary programs (STEM and Social Sciences), pipe-lines programs, and student success via linking programs to
national needs. The common thread of each author is a focus on students as each concept is introduced and discussed. The end result of the chapters of this book is the development of a sustainablity model using each author’s respective “panels” that are developed into a wonderful “quilt” for student success and institutional sustainability."
