Student retention, engagement, and success are some of the biggest challenges that administrators and university leaders face in higher education settings. As financial support and steep competition pose an issue to student acquisition and participation, especially within Historically Black Colleges and Universities, it becomes pertinent that these academic organizations implement new leadership practices to assist in the overall success of the student, as well as the institution. Administrative Challenges and Organizational Leadership in Historically Black Colleges and Universities examines how administrations in Historically Black Educational Institutions utilize different leadership techniques to overcome challenges of student retention and engagement. Focusing on student development practices, organizational collaboration, funding for institutions, and support provided from faculty and staff within Historically Black Colleges and Universities, this book is an essential reference for university administrators, educators, researchers, and graduate-level students in the fields of education and sociology.
As more Americans are attending college, historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) are now in a position where they must directly compete with other institutions. While other colleges and universities might have more resources and stronger infrastructures, HBCUs provide better opportunities to meet the needs of students of color. Setting a New Agenda for Student Engagement and Retention in Historically Black Colleges and Universities explores the innovations that HBCUs can enact to better serve and prepare the next generation of African American leaders, and to be more competitive in the higher education landscape. As students need different forms of support throughout their academic career, it becomes necessary to engage them through mentorship, programming, and classroom management. This book is a valuable resource for educators and administration at HBCUs, sociologists, policy makers, and students studying education science and administration.
