Minorities on Campus. A Survey of Black and Hispanic Participation in Colleges of the Rochester Area.
Taddiken, Nancy K.
This study was designed to identify and interpret trends in the participation of blacks and Hispanics in Rochester, New York, area colleges and to assess policies which affect their level of participation, either as students or as faculty and staff members. Four areas of concern were analyzed, including: (1) the extent to which admissions policies enhance higher education opportunities for minorities and the resultant enrollment trends; (2) the ways in which student financial aid is provided and the impact it has on minority opportunities; (3) how special remedial programs and support services have affected minority enrollment; and (4) the trends and policies concerning the hiring of minority staff and faculty. The report presents recommendations for increasing minority participation in Rochester area colleges. The appendix contains the responses to the survey questionnaires from the participating colleges.
