Saving Black Colleges makes clear the challenges, opportunities, and prospects for change historically black colleges and universities now face.

Alvin J. Schexnider is the president of Schexnider & Associates, LLC. He previously served as the president of Thomas Nelson Community College and as the executive vice president and interim president of Norfolk State University.
