1969-70 Oak Ridge Workshops for Faculty and Administrators of Traditionally Negro Institutions.
Grigorieff, W. W.
The purpose of this report was to review programs carried out by the Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) during 1969 and 1970 to help design, develop, implement, and evaluate various means for further strengthening traditionally Negro institutions of higher learning. The report summarizes two 4-week summer workshops for faculty members of Black institutions conducted during 1970 in Oak Ridge, and two 1-week workshops for administrators, held concurrently. The purpose of the workshops was to promote greater cognizance of national needs and related government programs through an examination of engineering, the natural sciences, social sciences, and the humanities as individual and collective sources of solutions to specific problems of national concern. An effort was also made to evaluate the relevance of existing governmental programs to scientific and technological capabilities of Negro schools. The report also: (1) traces chronologically the events that led to the 1970 activities and presents the activities and results of the 1969 workshops; (2) briefly discusses the 1970 post- workshop developments and activities; and (3) summarizes the accomplishments of the workshops and presents a projection of the ORAU's future role in activities with, and on behalf of predominantly Black institutions.
