Report Number 3 of the Coalition for the Concerns of Blacks in Post-Secondary Education in South Carolina.
Davis, Marianna W.
Information is presented on black access to and participation in the South Carolina state system of higher education and plans for desegregation of the system, in response to the 1978 Revised Criteria issued by the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. The only traditionally black, senior, public institution in the state is examined in "A Study of the History and Future Development of South Carolina State College: A Demographic Background Study" (Leonard Haynes, III). A master plan prepared by the Coalition for the Concerns of Blacks in Postsecondary Education (CCBE) in South Carolina is also presented. The plan contains data, recommendations, and planning charts on the mission and academic programs of South Carolina State College, public higher education enrollments, governing boards, nonacademic personnel, and faculty and administrative staff. Findings of a 1979 survey on postsecondary education concerns of selected black leaders in South Carolina and a sample of South Carolinians living outside the state are also presented, along with the questionnaire. Information on factors affecting college choice among black students is presented in the following paper: "Research Report and Policy Implications: Black Students at the University of South Carolina-Columbia" (A. Wade Smith). Additionally, excerpts from a dissertation are presented: "The Consequences of Federal and State Resource Allocation and Development Policies for Traditionally Black Land-Grant Institutions, 1862-1954" (William E. Trueheart). A 56-page appendix includes data on population trends, enrollments, financial aid, an executive summary of the report, and recommendations. (SW)
