Recent College and University Enrollment Patterns of Black Students in States Affected by Adams-Califano Litigation.
Brazziel, William; Brazziel, Marian
This study examines patterns of enrollment of black undergraduate students in 19 States affected by Adams-Califano litigation and rulings related to desegregation of higher education systems. The purpose of the research was to ascertain the degree of general participation of black undergraduates in higher education and to identify trends toward increase or decrease in this participation. Increases in participation of black students in areas where they are traditionally underrepresented are documented, and correlates for variability in participation rates are identified. The core of the data for the research was formed from the 1976 and 1978 enrollment tapes of the Higher Education General Information Survey. Data indicate that black enrollment in white colleges increased, while enrollment in black colleges decreased. Statewide participation rates and high parity rates were found to be related to geographical location of the State, black family income, the presence or absence of black colleges, and the number of white regional State colleges in the State. Tables of data are included. (Author/MK)
