The Effect of Historically Black Colleges on Wages of Black Students: an Analysis by Gender
This study considers the effect of attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) on wages of black students. A model is developed to estimate reduced form wages equations conditioned on the decision to attend a four year HBCU, non-HBCU or no four year institution. Models are then estimated separately for men and women. Men and women both benefit in terms of wages, conditional on the decision to attend an HBCU. However, HBCU attendance may be beneficial to a broader population of men than women.
