Minorities and Advanced Degrees.
The Agitation for civil rights by black Americans during the 1960's caused many colleges and universities to reassess their recruitment and admissions policies. This reassessment took place primarily at the undergraduate level. Many articles, monographs, and books appeared that considered the merits of preferential admissions for disadvantaged students and described procedures for recruitment and remedial programs. Within the last few years, the discussion has moved to the involvement of graduate and professional schools in the education of minority group students in general, including blacks, Chicanos, and American Indians. This paper examines some of the literature that deals with efforts to increase the numbers of minority students enrolling in post-baccalaureate medical, legal, and graduate programs. (Author)
