Admissions Policy of the City University of New York. Statement of Policy by the Board of Higher Education.
City Univ. of New York, NY.
This statement represents the New York City Board of Higher Education's response to 4 of 5 "demands" negotiated earlier at City College by representatives of the college administration and student faculty. The Board previously approved a fifth item, that the Spanish language and Black and Puerto Rican history be required for all of the College's education majors. On the other issues, the Board approved the development of an institute and programs at senior and community colleges on Black and Puerto Rican studies, all to be subject to faculty and administrative control. Supplementary freshman orientation programs for specific groups of students were welcomed by the Board, provided all freshmen would be advised of the existence of such programs and ALL students who voluntarily wish to participate in them could do so. The Board called for the establishment of college departments that would include counselors and instructors of the SEEK Program, but a SEEK director would be appointed by the president of the university. Authority was also given to the colleges to form committees of SEEK students and faculty that would advise on student activities, curricula, and faculty recruitment. The Board also directed the Chancellor of the university to determine the feasibility of offering admission to all New York City high school graduates by September 1970 rather than by 1975. (WM)
