Youngsters from different countries, races, and social background are forced to integrate when they all enroll in Columbus University. They all have their own problems, such as finance, harrassment, personal safety, and self doubt. Additionally, campus life seems to be causing a problem for everyone: racism. Students, already under pressure to perform in the classroom, on the track, or in front of their friends, are strained to the breaking point by prejudice, inexperience, and misunderstanding.

The film was heavily cut upon its release, eliminating much of the romantic relationship between Jennifer Connelly and Kristy Swanson's characters, including the resolution to it, along with more scenes involving the neo-Nazis and the other groups' activities and relationships going throughout the university.

Remy refers earlier in the movie that it is 1995. The "Peace Fest" that is advertised on the flyers is slated to take place on Saturday, November 15. For it to be a Saturday and be on November 15 it would either have to be 1986 or 1997. See more »
"Higher Learning" is a film only a superficial hippie-wanna-be could love. It's underlying theme is nauseatingly racist in nature all the while attempting to pass itself off as a film promoting tolerance of diversity. Bahhh! What an insult to the viewer's intelligence.
John Singleton has a blatantly obvious axe to grind with white folks. It is unfortunate that he utilizes cinema to perpetuate his agenda to turn people against one another in an effort to sell his lousy flicks.
To gripe about this film any further would be to pay undue homage to it and therefore I will end this with two words of advice... "steer clear"!
