Brown, Roscoe C., Jr.
The Institute for Training Minority Group Research and Evaluation Specialists comprised 4 programs in 1: (1) a 6-week graduate course at New York University (NYU) during the 1970 summer session for 20 minority group persons that provided training in research design, statistics, data collection and analysis, and report writing; (2) a program of visitations to college campuses throughout the country to inform minority group graduates and undergraduates of opportunities in educational research; (3) a workshop at the 1971 AERA meeting for the participants in the Summer Workshop to provide opportunities for them to upgrade their research skills and to attend meetings at the convention; and (4) an evaluation and planning conference in which 10 minority group educational research specialists examined the summer programs at Tuskegee and NYU and considered objectives and prioroties for long-range preparation of minority group educational research personnel. All phases of the program were successful, in that 12 of the 20 participants at the Summer Institute are doing some work in educational research, 6 are involved in graduate study, and over 500 students and educators were contacted through the visitation program.
