The Negro and Engineering Education: A Selection of Responses from 100 Deans of Engineering.
Lantz, Robert J.
This report contains the responses and comments of 100 deans of engineering colleges to a questionnaire pertaining to black students and engineering education. The questionnaire was divided in three parts. Part I requested information on the number of (1) freshmen, (2) seniors, and (3) total students in all engineering departments. Part II contained 8 questions to be answered on a five point scale on the significance of engineering education for the black student, the adequacy of the training in black colleges for work in today's bureaucratic corporations, and the responsibility of predominantly white colleges to provide special programs, financial aid and actively recruit black high school students. Part III requested information on the experience of predominantly white schools with special programs for black students, and asked whether schools desired to organize a special program, but failed to because of lack of funds or fear of lowering admission standards. The responses are interpreted and recommendations made. (AF)
