The major thrust of the Institute for Services to Education (ISE) is to broaden the range of opportunities for Negroes in higher education. ISE does this through long-range programs at predominantly Negro institutions. The institute's major functions are curriculum reform and attracting funds to get new educational programs started. But it also has sponsored a social action project in which students work with local community agencies. Another ISE effort is a series of conferences across the South to prepare young college graduates (Negro and white for future roles as teachers in integrated schools. This document presents a brief history of the ISE, a description of the Thirteen-College Curriculum Programs (TCCP), including a description of the 4 courses taught in the TCCP curriculum during the last academic year (ideas and their expression, quantitative and analytical thinking, social institutions, and natural science), describes the conferences for integrated teaching, and the communication skills institutes (to improve, if necessary, the ability to communicate orally of the graduates of predominantly Negro colleges who plan to teach), and a description of the Community Action Program (CAP).
