Strengthening the Predominantly Negro College.
Potts, John F.
The Quarterly Review of Higher Education Among Negroes, v35 n1 p31-37 Jan 1967
The Negro colleges are often considered to be weak, but it is felt that conditions are now favorable for strengthening these institutions. Factors contributing to improvements are the national attention to the problems of Negro colleges, Federal education legislation, the general increase in college enrollment, and the heightened interest of business and industry in Negro graduates. However, the colleges must take the initiative to better prepare their graduates who are often ill-prepared in high schools. Also needed are long-range planning for a development program, interinstitutional cooperation to strengthen academic and instructional programs, and, finally, a willingness to change. (NH)
