The College and Cultural Diversity; The Black Student on Campus: A Project Report.
Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA.
The Southern Regional Education Board's Institute for Higher Educational Opportunity asked the presidents of 337 predominantly white colleges and universities in 14 southern states to describe innovative programs which their institutions had developed to assist minority students, and particularly Black students, to enroll and to succeed. They were asked not to report traditional programs in remedial work. Replies describing 460 programs came from more than 100 institutions. This report discusses and summarizes many of these programs under the following headings: (1) recruiting and admissions; (2) instruction; (3) counseling Services; (4) campus life; and (5) graduate and professional schools. In the appendix several examples of institution-wide planning are reported in some detail to show the many facets involved in comprehensive program design. The appendices also include a report on the Black Studies program experience at New College, and an overview of a conference held April 25-27, 1971, in Atlanta on: "Black Students and the University," by John Egerton.
