Behavior Growth in Rapidly Changing Institutions.
Ingram, Jesse; Haslag, Georgiann
This study is a 5-year longitudinal project that commenced in the fall of 1970 and is scheduled to be consummated in the winter of 1975. The research is being conducted on the campuses of five traditionally black colleges who are experiencing a racial shift in their student population. The primary objective of this project is to improve the ability of certain unique, biracial colleges in terms of clear description and interpretation of their program results concerning student development and to employ this improved ability as the basis for rational institutional planning, development, and change. A second objective of this project is to investigate the adequacy and accuracy of the measuring instruments in the evaluation of various cognitive and effective characteristics of black students. To meet these objectives, the study, in conjunction with the colleges, propose to: measure entering characteristics of the students; gather measures of student development and change at certain time points in college careers; document the predominant characteristic of the institutions and patterns of academic and biracial interaction; and develop multivariate descriptions of development by race, retention and withdrawal, and academic program involvement.
