The Council of Historically Black Graduate Schools
The Council of Historically Black Graduate Schools assists member organizations in increasing enrollment, retention, and graduation of African-American students in graduate programs and to prepare them to become future faculty and leaders.
The CHBGS seeks to :
- Enhance the number and quality of graduate courses and degree programs available in HBCUS and in institutions interested in graduate education for African American students.
- Promote the research mission of member institutions by encouraging maximum involvement in scholarly initiatives and by facilitating the dissemination of knowledge concerning African-Americans.
- Support the concept of multiculturalism; however, it recognizes and defends the right of graduate programs at HBCUS to compete equitably for funds to support programs and services in order to promote graduate study among African-American students.
- Ensure the viable representation of historically black colleges and universities at all forums pertaining to American graduate education.
