Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have awarded a large share of bachelor’s degrees to African American students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), and nine of the top ten baccalaureate institutions of African American STEM doctorate recipients from 2006-2010 are HBCUs. The SMED Program is an exemplary program with a dedicated mission of increasing the number and quality of STEM doctorate recipients.
