ATLANTA— Georgia State University continues to lead the nation in graduating minority students, now ranking No.1 in the nation among not-for-profit institutions in awarding bachelor’s degrees to African-American students according to Diverse: Issues in Higher Education.

With a 17 percent one-year increase, Georgia State outpaced all other non-profit colleges and universities in awarding bachelor degrees to African-American students in the magazine’s rankings of the “Top 100 Undergraduate Degree Producers.” GSU conferred 1,262 bachelor’s degrees to African-Americans in 2012, climbing past Florida A&M and North Carolina A&T State University.

Georgia State’s overall graduation rates continue to break records and earn national accolades, thanks to innovative programs for retention and progression. Overall, the university has raised its graduation rates by 29 percentage points in the last decade, and the numbers continue to climb.

“The latest rankings from Diverse: Issues in Higher Education again show that Georgia State is indeed a place where all students succeed,” said Georgia State University President Mark Becker. “We are extremely gratified to see our programs working and our students flourishing.”

Does something like this give credit to the argument that HBCUs are becoming obsolete?

How do you suppose that it would?

HBCUs represent an important lesson in history. One time in high school, a European student argued against the existence of HBCUs. I thought of his opinions, then remarked, those that aren't HBCUs are HWCU. And that's a lesson that we should not forget.

If HBCUs graduated only one student, they still ought remain. Once we forget how we were mistreated, we're in for the whole mess all over again! See African history from ancient times until now.

I think that there is alot to be discussed here. Being a product of an HBCU myself, I have observed the stripping of the hbcu culture, its "defunct" style of operation and how they repeatedly put money ahead of education all the while making worthless investments in expansion and upgrades, meanwhile their research centers and libraries are falling apart, under funded and dusty with few books printed in this century!!! Yes I have witnessed this first hand..Yet the football team which can barely qualify for the MEAC is considered for a new stadium...go figure...

Many HBCU's were started as land grant institutions by whites anyway, are funded by the state and are dictated to as to how they will operate. Even some so called private institutions the few esteemed such as Howard and Spellmen were started by whites and are still run by them. It was a Rockerfeller that started spellmen by the way...smh

Good news; NRA filed for bankruptcy.
Bad news; Police often kill mentally and handicapped people.
I despise these racist killing NYPD. I'm glad Attorney General Letitia James filed a law suit against NYPD for using "excessive, brutal and unlawful force" against Black Lives Matter protesters! The law suit also targets the Mayor, police commissioner Dermot Shea and Chief of Department, Terry Monahan! Several NYPD cops have been suspended, along with many other racist violent killer cops across this nation.
Will the 3 white GOPs in Congress, Gosar, Biggs and Brooks, be charged with sedition and felony murder for inciting and helping Ali Alexander plan the insurrection? Ali Alexander, black trump supporter who started Stop The Steal and organized the insurrection, threw these 3 white terrorists under the bus. All of them should get long prison sentences. Alexander, a convicted felony, will likely be charged first.
2 things to share;
a. 33 more days to go before I hit 200 straight days of exercise.
b. Pls visit orangeseahorse . com. Not selling anything! It's a free site to post true short stories, poems, etc. Also free to read. We have 500,000 views and some writers have been published. These true short stories are poignant and life changing. Thanks,
Why aren't the white domestic terrorists charged w/felony murder and terrorism? YES, I answered my own question with the phrase 'white domestic terrorist'. But let's see if black traitor "Ali Alexander" will be charged w/felony murder for helping organize the deadly insurrection. His white comrades will blame him for influencing them to commit violence. His butt will be tattered after they throw him under the bus.
