Higher Education Finance. A Comparative Study of Matched Samples of Black and White Private Institutions.
Jellema, William W.
The nation's private black colleges face financial concerns similar to those that occupy the attention of administrators and trustees of the private white colleges. Although these are mutual concerns, the significant and unique role served by the black colleges historically and the needs of these institutions today merit special concern. This document presents an analysis of comparisons of the 14 private black colleges and a matched sample of predominantly white private colleges. Implications drawn from the findings support observations and results of other attempts to define the financial requirements important to the continued development of resources and capabilities at the predominantly black institution. Among the findings of the study were: (1) The black colleges fell slightly short of the 5% minimum level for library support that is generally considered acceptable. (2) Regarding faculty salaries, the data revealed that professors at the white colleges received 9.8% greater compensation than did professors at the black colleges. (3) Staffing needs in student services have received particular attention at the black colleges, especially in the areas of admissions, student orientation, counseling assistance, and placement. (4) The average black college allocated $225 more per student for financial aid than did the average white college in 1968-69. (HS)
