Black colleges write McCrory about concerns

Posted: Updated:
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -

The leaders of historically black colleges and universities have written North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory about challenges they face.

The Fayetteville Observer reports the three-page letter was signed by Fayetteville State University Chancellor James Anderson on behalf of 11 schools in the state.

The schools cite problems with changes in federal financial aid policies, state funding cuts, outdated infrastructure, and a lack of scholarship support.

The letter says the schools are working on a plan to deal with the issues. McCrory had asked the schools to put together a plan following a meeting with school leaders earlier this year.

The letter says the schools have an impact of about $1.4 billion and employ about 19,000 people.

Anderson says he thinks the plan will be used by the governor.
