Long-Term Activities for Minority Institutions in Science and Technology Lake Arrowhead Conference (June 4-8, 1984).
Hall, John H.
This report, produced by acknowledged experts in scientific research and in science administration from both the minority and majority community, proposes mechanisms for the development of nationally competitive research efforts at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and for establishing parity for blacks in science and technology careers. Following an executive summary, four separate papers are presented. These papers address issues related to and discuss plans for: (1) strengthening and expanding doctoral study and research programs in HBCUs; (2) strengthening and expanding undergraduate programs in HBCUs; (3) significantly increasing the number of high school students selecting careers in science and technology; and (4) expanding and establishing collaborative research programs between universities, industry, and national laboratories. Each includes a summary, introduction, programmatic thrust (goals), mechanisms for implementation, recommendations, and other information unique to the specific component addressed. Efforts in these areas are designed to increase the pool of minority scientists; improve the quality of faculty at all levels; improve facilities; and provide strategies to secure, as well as sustain, funding for these programs.
