Second Annual Equal Postsecondary Educational Opportunity Status Report for the Period July 1, 1981-Fall 1982.
Maryland State Board for Higher Education, Annapolis.
The 1981-1982 report on postsecondary desegregation progress in Maryland is presented. The goals of the 1980-85 plan and the status of attainment of the goals are discussed. Data are presented on enrollments, degrees granted, employment, and governing boards. For each state institution, a chart provides information on goals and recommendations, current activities, and proposed activities. Highlights include the following: black and white high school graduates continued to enter college at similar rates; generally, community college enrollments were reflective of the racial composition of the service area's high school graduates and total population; statewide, the percentage of black first-time graduate students declined from 13.6 percent in 1979 to 10.2 percent in 1982; statewide there was a significant increase of doctorates awarded to blacks from 2.67 percent in 1979-1980 to 7.7 in 1981-1982; overall, the percentage of black headcount enrollment declined from 18.1 percent in fall 1981 to 17.7 percent in fall 1982. It is noted that there are several governing boards whose membership does not reflect the racial composition of their service areas. Information on progress in meeting the 1985 undergraduate accessibility goals is provided for specific campuses. (Author/SW)
