DAYTONA BEACH – Bethune-Cookman University (B-CU) is living up to one of its founders’ driving principles: “Enter to Learn, Depart to Serve.”
For the second consecutive year, B-CU was recognized as one of U.S. News & World Report’s top performing private schools in Florida on the Social Mobility Index, which gauges the economic trajectory of students after graduation.
“This recent report reinforces how serious B-CU is about giving a return on taxpayers’ investment of the federal Pell Grant,” said Anthony Jones, Vice President of Enrollment Management and Student Experience. “Over 80% of our enrolled students receive some form of financial aid, and of those, approximately 80% have been awarded Pell Grants. Not only do students earn a degree, but they’re also given the tools needed to achieve the American dream and contribute to the global economy.”
The new rankings from U.S. News & World Report also saw B-CU jump six places to number 43 among all HBCUs.
