Controversial Bill Threatens Fate of 3 North Carolina HBCUs

Three North Carolina HBCUs are in jeopardy thanks to a controversial bill designed to bankrupt five of the state’s universities.

Senate Bill 873, also known as the Access to Affordable College Education Act, will render the colleges unsustainable as four-year institutions by reducing tuition to $500 per semester. The move will turn Winston-Salem State University, Elizabeth City State and Fayetteville State University, all HBCUs, into community colleges.

According to the Charlotte Observer, Senate Bill 873 has another purpose. The bill will rename four of the five campuses and calls for a study of “the impact of each university’s name on the institution’s academic strength, enrollment, and diversity…”

Wow.
