Predominantly Black institutions (PBIs) are also classified and defined by the US Congress. Under the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, the bill that reauthorized the Higher Education Act of 1965, the key goal of PBIs is to expand higher education opportunities for eligible Black American and first-generation college students.2,4 At least 50% of the students who matriculate at these institutions are low-income (i.e., individuals from a family whose taxable income for the preceding year did not exceed 150% of an amount equal to the poverty level determined using the criteria of poverty established by the Bureau of the Census) or first-generation (i.e., individuals whose parents did not complete a baccalaureate degree).5 Of all students enrolled at a PBI, 40% or more are African American.5
