Research in Black Colleges and Universities: Administrative Perspectives, Prospectives and Challenges.
Boykin, Leander L.
Research for administrative decisionmaking, long-range institutional planning, goal determination, understanding campus influences upon students, and other aspects of higher education is of relatively recent origin. This document presents discussions of the meaning and nature of administrative research; the administrative research tradition in black colleges and universities; institutional research needs in black colleges and universities; and training and research needs of black administrators. Four recommendations for the future at black colleges and universities are: (1) those interested or engaged in administration in black institutions should become acquainted with research reports and literature dealing with black institutions and black students; (2) promising young faculty members should be recruited and conditions should be established under which they can become scientific revolutionaries; (3) black colleges should establish some kind of institutional research office or program as soon as possible; and (4) there should be undertaken a comprehensive improvement program for black administrators.
