Abstract/Description: While there exists extensive research on the historical development of HistoricallyBlack Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in the United States, there is limited researchfocused on the current development of HBCUs in terms of institutional effectiveness andstrategic planning. This gap in the research is particularly relevant in the midst of shiftsin state funding that have occurred over the past decade. This research study is designedto move further towards filling this research gap by determinations through theexamination of: (1) the interplay of fiscal issues and institutional effectiveness in relationto the historic mission, strategic efforts, and state mandates within the context of HBCUs;(2) the perceived institutional effectiveness of HBCUs by key internal and externalstakeholders; and (3) the alignment of HBCU mission statements with mandated metricsof institutional effectiveness. Using a qualitative research design, an exploratory multisitecase study was employed across two institutions. Nine key HBCU stakeholders such as the Presidents and the Vice Presidents of Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, FinancialAffairs, and Alumni Affairs were interviewed to gain their perspectives on institutionaleffectiveness in relationship to shifting funding, heightened accountability, plannedstrategies to address these issues, and how these issues directly impact institutionaleffectiveness at HBCUs. Interviewee perspectives of shifts in funding were examinedusing a researcher-developed conceptual framework. In addition to conductinginterviews, the researcher engaged in document review of relevant university documents,as well as a review of funding patterns of state allocations retrieved from the IntegratedPostsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS). Data from the three sources weretriangulated and a two-layered coding strategy was used for further analysis. Findingsfrom this data analysis were then used to address the five research questions presented inthis study. The findings revealed that fluctuating shifts in state allocated funding hascreated a complex environment for HBCUs. Key HBCU administrators held similarperspectives, that in the midst of such a complex environment, emergent institutionalresponse strategies have been put into place to maintain HBCU institutional effectivenesswithin the context of the historic HBCU mission.
