First Annual Equal Postsecondary Educational Opportunity Status Report for the Period July 1, 1980-Fall, 1981.
Maryland State Board for Higher Education, Annapolis.
The 1980-1981 report of the postsecondary desegregation progress in Maryland is presented. The goals of the 1980 plan and the status of attainment of the goals are discussed. Data are presented on enrollments, degrees granted, employment, and governing boards. Additionally, for each state institution, a chart provides information on goals and recommendations, current activities, and proposed activities. Highlights of the progress achieved include: black and white high school graduates continued to enter college at similar rates; black and white associate degree recipients transferred to four-year institutions at similar rates; three-quarters of the black graduates who transferred did so to a predominantly white institution; and generally, community college enrollments were reflective of the racial composition of the service area's high school graduates and total population. Highlights of areas of concern include: the percentage of black first-time graduate students declined from 13.6 percent in 1979 to 10 percent in 1981; there are several governing boards whose membership does not reflect the racial composition of their service areas; and black faculty in predominantly white institutions and black employees of state boards and state higher educational agencies need to be increased. The first part of the annual institutional report summary form is appended. (SW)
