These colleges provided access to higher education for African-American and Native American students during periods of slavery, reconstruction, and “Jim Crow” segregationist policies.  Today, they serve as a one of the many options for students interested in a diverse and inclusive post-secondary education.

I encourage all students and their parents to come out and take advantage of all the information and tools that will assist them in better understanding their higher education options” Taylor said.
