Minority Group Involvement in University Life.
McDiffett, Kenneth E.
Discrimination against the Black American Student on college campuses, and its current less blatant forms are discussed. The subtle pattern of discrimination is reflected in the curriculum, in the testing and grading systems, and in cultural events. The bulk of the paper suggests remedies and alleviations for the situation. New entrance requirements, special supportive programs for high risk minority students, and the prediction of relevancies pertinent to their future are considered basic. The focus is on opportunity and competence. Along this line, new recruitment programs and Black Studies programs are mentioned. Giving minority students a voice in planning and implementing these programs, as well as including their participation on the administrative councils of schools, is stressed. The paper concludes that colleges and universities must involve these students in the many facets of campus life. (TL)
