Historically Black Colleges and Universities

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by black Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of African Americans in U.S. history. The Council on Social Work Education is pleased to celebrate Black History Month and recognizes the importance of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in the United States that were established with the intention of serving the black community. Of the 105 HBCU institutions in America today, 27 offer doctoral programs and 52 provide graduate degree programs at the Master's level. At the undergraduate level, 83 of the HBCUs offer a Bachelor's degree program and 38 of these schools offer associate degrees. 29 HBCU social work programs have been accredited for their social work programs by CSWE.
