Blake, Elias, Jr.; And Others
ISE Research Report, v1 n1 Oct 74
This study looks at two indexes of growth and development of black colleges: trends in student enrollment and trends in the awarding of degrees. This 8-year study covers the period 1966-1973. There are 98 of the 107 historically black schools including 86 4-year schools, 50 private schools, and 36 public. Results indicated that baccalaureate degrees granted increased from 15,728 in 1966 to 25,094 in 1973. In 1973, 31,280 baccalaureate, graduate, and professional degrees were awarded. Over the 8 years 165,435 BA's were awarded. Graduate and professional degrees increased from 2,158 to 6,186; 90 percent of these were master's degrees, with about two-thirds in education. Enrollment increased from 139,444 in 1966 to 183,419 in 1973. There has been a consistent pattern of growth over the 8-year period. Enrollment in black colleges increased 31.5 percent from 1966 to 1973 as compared to 33.3 percent in all 4-year colleges. (MJM)
