Black Students on White Campuses: The Impacts of Increased Black Enrollments.
Peterson, Marvin W.; And Others
The responsiveness of 13 institutions to increased black enrollments is examined in this book. Focus is on the impacts of minority enrollments on the institutions--what kinds of changes took place and who felt the greatest impact because of the changes--and the reasons for success or failure of minority programs among the various schools. The problems of incorporating new porgrams into the existing structure are addressed. In recent years, new programs have been established at the periphery of the academic institutions with short-term outside funds. In the face of declining appropriations to higher education, these problems are crucial to the future of any new educational program. It is suggested that improvements in dealing with the changes brought by increased black enrollments can also be useful in institutional handling of the new wave of older, nontraditional students. The book is divided into the following sections: Evolution of a Complex Social Issue: The Basis for the Study; The Determinants and Dynamics of Change; Institutional Impacts and Responses; The 1975 Perspectives: Integration, Segregation, or Pluralism; and Evolution or Revolution: The Process Reviewed. Appended are the research design abstract, interview guide, survey questionnaire, samples and institutional response rates for the survey populations, evaluation methods (factor analysis); and mean scores on indices for faculty and administrators.
