Educational Opportunities Programs for Minority and Low-Income Students in California and U.S. Colleges and Universities.
Allen, Anne Gillespie
The problem investigated here has three aspects: (1) to determine the extent of minority and low-income student underrepresentation in U.S. colleges and universities; (2) to identify and analyze the nature and degree of barriers which cause the underrepresentation; and, (3) to determine the nature, extent, and efficacy of interventions applied. The investigation began with a review of the literature about college-level compensatory education related fields. Personal interviews were conducted with educational opportunities program officials throughout the United States designed to determine seven program components: history, management, student personnel services, student racial-ethnic distribution, physical facilities, evaluation, and plans. The 156 California institutions accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges were then contacted. Between June, 1967 and December, 1968, data were gathered by mail. Personal interviews were conducted from June 1967 to February 1970 at 90 California and U.S. colleges with unusual efforts. About 525 institutional and agency persons were personally interviewed.
