The purpose of this thesis was to examine the effect of college resources and attendance at a historically Black College or University (HBCU) on the performance of Black Naval officers. The effects of college resources, college resources, college attendance, and other factors on officer performance measures were evaluated using multivariate logistic regression analysis techniques. The results of the analysis show the college resources have significant and positive effect on the probability of promotion for Black officers commissioned through Navy Reserve Officer Training Corps of Officer Candidate School. Attending an HBCU had a negative effect on receiving the RAP mark on LT fitness reports and a positive effect on retention.
