The Georgia Senate Study Committee on Excellence, Innovation, and Technology at HBCUs, which met over the course of 2022, issued its final report on Thursday. Georgia is home to ten of the nation’s 100 HBCUs, including Martin Luther King’s alma mater of Morehouse College and Spelman College, one of two all-women HBCUs in the country.

The study committee was created to study the “conditions, needs, issues and challenges facing Georgia’s HBCUs” and make recommendations for action that are “necessary or appropriate.” It was also created to highlight the economic and social benefits of HBCUs in the state. Georgia’s HBCUs produce $1.3 billion in total economic impact, 12,040 jobs and $9.1 billion in lifetime earnings.
