A Plan to Assure Equal Postsecondary Educational Opportunity, 1980-1985.
Maryland State Board for Higher Education, Annapolis.
The present report was developed as a reassessment and revision of the 1974 state plan for completing desegregation of higher education to meet new challenges and problems in the 1980s. Accomplishment of the new goals was targeted for 1985. This report has four chapters. Chapter one summarizes the goals and recommendations of the task force on undergraduate, graduate, and first-professional program accessibility; underrepresented fields of study, retention, student financial aid, employment of black faculty, administrators, and other professionals; enhancement of historically black institutions; governing boards; evaluation and implementation; and institutional budgeting. Chapter two reviews the legal background of the 1974 plan and outlines the task force's philosophical position on equal educational opportunity. The third chapter is an assessment of the present status of equal educational opportunity in the state, and chapter four gives the analysis and rationale for the numerical goals and program recommendations adopted by the task force. The new goals include (1) insuring equal postsecondary educational access; and (2) preserving the viability of historically black institutions. A section contains extensive data tables on state and institutional demographic, enrollment, retention, and staffing characteristics. Technical appendices include projections of the 1985 black high school graduates and 1985 black full-time freshmen, and notes on the development of the 1985 graduate other-race enrollment goals.
