Final Report on Needs Assessment of the Processes, Programs, and Services Used to Enroll Spanish-Speaking Students in Higher Education in New Jersey: Educational Opportunities and the Hispanic College Student.
Puerto Rican Congress of New Jersey, Trenton.
In 1973 the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, in an effort to improve the delivery of services to Spanish-speaking people in the State of New Jersey, granted monies to the Puerto Rican Congress for the purpose of conducting a Needs Assessment Study in Higher Education. Specifically, the study was to provide information to the Regional Director for Region II (New Jersey's region) in order to assist his efforts in strengthening recruiting programs; improve the administration of the Basic Opportunity Grants; assist the TRIO Program components in improving the delivery of services to Spanish speakers; and, enhance the use and administration of the RD (Research and Development) Review and sign off procedures. Four populations were involved in the research: university or college administrators, and Spanish-speaking community organizations. Fifteen colleges representatively distributed in the three regions into which the state is usually divided were selected because they are located in areas with large concentrations of Spanish speakers. Fifteen high schools in the state were also selected on these bases. In addition 15 community organizations which primarily serve the Spanish-speaking community were selected. (Author/JM)
