Center for Policy Research, New York, NY.
This report, based on theoretical considerations as well as knowledge from cumulated sociological research in the field of compensatory education, is in three parts. Section I is a policy memorandum on Black studies focusing on: bridging education, undergraduate Black studies, and social centers, besides graduate programs and research specialization. The response of American colleges to the underprepared student is dealt with in Section II. Assessment of the clientele, supportive programs for the underprepared, and compensatory programs comprising remedial courses, pre-college programs, intensive programs, and motivation programs are discussed in this section. Section III consists of an annotated bibliography on pluralism and integration on white campuses categorized into: background analyses, either theoretical/philosophical or empirical in nature; materials concerned with the needs of minority students; proposals, designs or demands for programs; reports or statements of programs already in existence; and, assessment of established programs or program proposals and analyses of implications of Black studies.
