  1. What is going on with HBCUs managing their accreditation? Someone way in, because I do not get it. HBCUs are in constant threat of losing it or on probation and warning. I do not see PWIs under this constant threat. What is the difference, just concerned.

    1. In short, accreditation is based on many factors; governance, finance, and academic rigor are among the elements which typically get the most attention. For HBCUs, often a drop in enrollment or poor debt management, or excessive turnover in leadership can induce the accrediting body to warn a school that it is engaging in bad practices, and give the school time to fix those problems. But it is rare for a school to outright and suddenly lose accreditation.
