Part of the Whole.
Marland, S. P., Jr.
All Americans are in debt to the predominantly black institutions, for in redeeming their own people, they are helping in the redemption of our entire society. The present administration in Washington is determined to help black colleges build on their records of accomplishments, and to learn from them. Links between black institutions, which have had experience training and helping all minority groups, and predominantly white institutions must be made so that cooperative programs can be developed to strengthen all American higher education. Along these lines, the United States Office of Education will direct $100 million in fiscal year 1973 toward black colleges and other institutions enrolling a large number of minority students to support new efforts at building undergraduate programs leading to professions, and to support continued efforts in training leaders for the black community. With increased Federal support, black institutions will be able to increase their usefulness and educational relevance by improving current programs, investigating areas of special concern and importance to blacks and other minorities, and providing greater service to the community.
