HBCU in Detroit in Dire Straits

Lewis College of Business in Detroit is the only historically black educational institution in the state of Michigan. Classes are scheduled to resume at the college this coming Monday.

However, the school has lost its accreditation and only a few dozen students have enrolled for classes. Students who enroll at colleges that have lost accreditation are not eligible for federal financial aid.

The Detroit Free Press reports that some staff members at the college have not been paid since October. It is not clear at this point if the college will be able to continue operations.
