A Space Is a Terrible Thing to Waste

Diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) are not consistently and systematically assessed at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Moreover, when HBCUs do engage in DEIB work, it often reflects the efforts of Predominately White Institutions (PWIs). This chapter focuses on how DEIB manifests at HBCUs and its practice within its unique historical and educational context. Moreover, this chapter explains how DEIB is employed at HBCUs. In addition, the authors make the case of how HBCUs can engage in DEIB work by addressing issues involving LGBTQIA, developing policies that foster gender equity, and cultivating spaces for non-black students to become successful and embraced at HBCUs. In conclusion, the authors argue that HBCUs ought to employ a fifth rail in this work called liberation that centers the work of DEIB and addresses internalized racism to bring about a truly liberated space.
