The following request has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget for review under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995: Proposed Project: Assessment of the Engagement of Historically Black Colleges and Universities in Campus and Community-Based Activities to Eliminate Health Disparities (NEW) The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) plans to conduct a survey of 525 university administrators at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to collect information not otherwise available about the extent to which HBCUs have engaged in health promoting activities on campus and in their surrounding communities that are designed to eliminate health disparities among African Americans. The results of this survey will be used by HRSA’s Office of Minority Health and Health Disparities (OMHHD) to obtain information regarding the engagement of HBCUs in health disparities activities. The results of the survey will also permit OMHHD (1) to describe the origins, structure, content, and intensity of such activities, (2) to document the level of support for campus and community activities among administrative leaders at HBCUs, (3) to document the factors that facilitate or hinder the ability of HBCUs to engage in campus and community activities to eliminate health disparities, and (4) to determine whether there is a need among HBCUs for additional assistance that will allow them to expand their role and improve their effectiveness in addressing health disparities. The survey process will include a web-based survey to be completed by targeted respondents. Follow-up telephone calls will be conducted with respondents who do not complete the online survey. Approximately 5 administrators will be surveyed at each of the 105 recognized HBCUs. The types of administrators to be surveyed include Presidents, Deans of Faculty, Deans of Students, and staff and/or faculty that are leaders for programs that are associated with eliminating health disparities.
