Access and Power for Blacks in Higher Education.
Boyd, William M., II
This is a report on a symposium that discussed the problems of access and power for blacks in predominantly white colleges. It was agreed that more data was needed to improve the position of blacks, and that the problems of blacks must be related to the problems of higher education in general. White institutions tend to have stereotyped images of black students and therefore have stereotyped reactions to black students. Colleges should utilize their experience and proven capabilities in recruiting black students rather than launching completely untried programs. Other needs identified include: improved counseling; reasonable standards; and black recognition that acquisition of skills has priority over institutional change. The Educational Policy Center plans follow-up efforts based on this symposium. (CS)
