Higher Education in Black and White: A Seminar Report.
Mann, Peter B.
This is the report of a conference held by the Southeast Regional Council of the American Association for Higher Education to discuss the future of higher education in that region: to identify major problems, state goals, and suggest means of achieving these goals. The 32 conferees were divided into 3 discussion groups and each of the groups settled on the race problem and equal education for blacks and whites as being the major barrier to overcome in the future. In this vein, 3 goals were established as being of primary importance: (1) to provide equal opportunity for and equal access to higher education for all citizens, regardless of color or class, insofar as they can benefit from it; (2) to eliminate racial dualism in higher education across the Southeast; and (3) to assume major responsibility for eliminating white racism, both in educational institutions and in society at large. Other problems were also discussed at the conference ranging from public support of and confidence in higher education, to developing student potential for leadership roles. It is hoped that this report will have some impact on the leaders of higher education in the various states of the Southeast region, and will result in positive steps at that level. (HS)
