The Council of Historically Black Graduate Schools (CHBGS) seeks to:

- promote the research mission of member institutions by encouraging maximum involvement in scholarly initiatives and by facilitating the dissemination of knowledge concerning African-Americans.
- support the concept of multiculturalism; however, it recognizes and defends the right of graduate programs at HBCUS to compete equitably for funds to support programs and services in order to promote graduate study among African-American students.
