Maryland State Board for Higher Education, Annapolis.
Institutional progress in implementation of Maryland's desegregation plan for public postsecondary education institutions is reported. Midyear status reports are presented by each institution. Information is also given on desegregation activities of the State Board for Higher Education for August 1979 through July 1980 and on funds appropriated in funding year 1981 for implementation of the state's desegregation plan. The narrative summary of overall progress to date indicates that in the fall of 1979, the state's public higher education board reported 21.8 percent black students enrolled as full-time undergraduates. Community colleges as a group increased their black enrollments between 1978 and 1979, and 7 percent of all first-professional students enrolled in the state's public universities were black; this proportion has remained constant since 1977. Additionally, black administrators and faculty are clustered in the predominantly black institutions. Highlights of the midyear institutional reports are presented for the community college segment, state colleges and universities segment, University of Maryland segment, and St. Mary's College of Maryland. Information is included on student recruitment, student retention, financial aid, and faculty/staff recruitment. Recommendations are included. (SW)
