H. Res. 928

                 In the House of Representatives, U.S.,

                                                         July 26, 2006.
Whereas there are 103 historically Black colleges and universities in the United 
        States;
Whereas historically Black colleges and universities provide the quality 
        education essential to full participation in a complex, highly 
        technological society;
Whereas historically Black colleges and universities have a rich heritage and 
        have played a prominent role in the history of the United States;
Whereas historically Black colleges and universities have allowed many 
        underprivileged students to attain their full potential through higher 
        education;
Whereas the achievements and goals of historically Black colleges and 
        universities are deserving of national recognition; and
Whereas the Senate, in S. Res. 528 passed on July 13, 2006, designated the week 
        beginning September 10, 2006, as ``National Historically Black Colleges 
        and Universities Week'': Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the House of Representatives--
            (1) recognizes the achievements and goals of historically Black 
        colleges and universities in the United States;
            (2) supports the designation of an appropriate week as ``National 
        Historically Black Colleges and Universities Week''; and
            (3) requests the President to issue a proclamation designating such 
        a week, and calling on the people of the United States and interested 
        groups to observe such week with appropriate ceremonies, activities, and 
        programs to demonstrate support for historically Black colleges and 
        universities.
            Attest:

                                                                          Clerk.
