Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) produce a significant number of diverse professionals that materially strengthen the fabric of the United States. MSIs have successfully graduated millions of students of color, many of whom come from economically disadvantaged communities, where most have never attended college or earned a degree or credential. Yet, MSIs often lack adequate resources to put structures in place to graduate more students of color (Godreau et al., 2015). In 2014, four Traditionally White Institutions (TWIs) received more revenue from grants and contracts than all four-year Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) combined. In total, 89 four-year HBCUs collectively received $1.2 billion for grants and contracts from the federal, state, and local governments, as well as private foundations. By comparison, Johns Hopkins University received $1.6 billion alone (Toldson, 2015).
