UMES Reacts To HBCU Ruling

Posted: Updated:

PRINCESS ANNE, Md. - According to a judge, Maryland's historically black colleges and university's are being short-changed by the state.
On Monday, judge Catherine Blake wrote that "the practice of duplicating academic programs" put HBCUs at a competitive disadvantage. The judge recommended that the parties begin mediation to remedy the situation.

WMDT spoke with UMES president Doctor Juliette Bell about the ruling.

"This is a very complex ruling and it's going to require further review and scrutiny, but we're encouraged actually here on the Eastern Shore that through collaboration with universities like UMES and Salisbury State were cited as being able to meet the needs of our educational community through our distinctive programming," said UMES president Dr. Juliette Bell.

Maryland's four HBCU's are UMES, Morgan State, Bowie State and Coppin State.
