This First Year Seminar will explore the experiences of African Americans in American higher education institutions. We will discuss social, historical, and political aspects of the Black experience in colleges and universities, with an emphasis on the role played by constructions of race in higher education practices, policies, and settings. We will also discuss trends and patterns in the enrollment, performance, and completion rates of African American college students. Furthermore, we will discuss what the undergraduate experience entails in terms of preparation, adjustment, and academic expectations for reading, writing, and inquiry.
