The Black Student in the Wisconsin State Universities System.
Cotter, Cornelius P.
The Wisconsin State Committee and the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights have received many complaints of discrimination against minority students on the campuses and in the communities which house the Wisconsin State Universities. The Committee and Commission staff reviewed the complaints and decided to conduct an inquiry into problems associated with minority enrollment, more specifically, black enrollment, in the Wisconsin State University System. The complaints received pertained mostly to events at WSU-Whitewater and WSU-Oshkosh. In each case the local WSU administration instituted disciplinary action against a group of black students who allegedly committed acts of mass violence. In each instance special academic disciplinary proceedings were instituted by the Office of WSU Regents in Madison, and students were additionally tried in court on criminal complaints. This report is based on the data and impressions gained from the extensive interviews conducted on campus and in the local communities, and from the responses gained from circulated questionnaires.
