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.
    The burden estimate for this project is as follows:
