Most HBCUs have come up with a number of retention strategies which are largely implemented through the support that these institutions receive from the federal government in form of grants. Some of the strategies that will be examined in this work include (a) social integration/social involvement, (b) first year programs, (c) Meyerhoff scholars program, (d) bridge programs, and (e) academic coaching and counseling. These strategies have positively impacted the education quality. Being that the federal government remains to be a funder of these programs, many initiatives can be developed with no extra funding at all.
