Manpower Resources of the Traditionally Negro Colleges.
Scott, Gary J.
College Placement Services, Inc. (CPS) was formed in 1964 to help develop and upgrade career counseling and placement programs at traditionally Negro colleges. Since 1965, annual surveys have been made at these colleges which have included data on enrollment, degrees and major fields offered, majors of current graduates, and career fields entered by graduates. A comparison of the 1965 and 1968 surveys in which 58 institutions participated indicated the following trends: (1) an increase in general enrollment, but notably of male enrollment, with a growing number of baccalaureate degrees awarded to males; (2) an increase in business administration majors and a decrease in education majors, though education still represents the principal initial career choice of all graduates; (3) increased on-campus recruiting visits by all types of organizations, though business and industrial firms predominate; and (4) increased student awareness and utilization of placement services and increased assignment of administrative personnel to the placement function. Tables are included. (AF)
