Report of the Survey of Admissions Officers in Selected Black Colleges (in the Moton Consortium on Admissions and Financial Aid).
Morris, Eddie W.
Questionnaires sent to 60 black colleges were designed to provide information concerning characteristics of the chief officers, including salaries by size of institution and by level of education, experience of selected admissions officers, supporting staff, student recruitment duties, admissions procedures, space and facilities, and budgeting and finance. Results of the survey based on the 40 returned responses indicate that admissions officers in balck colleges are adequately trained to fulfill their professional obligations. Admissions officers are being treated increasingly as professionals, important cogs in the wheels of academic governance at black colleges, and they are receiving faculty rank and tenure. These administrators are chairing important committees and serving on committees that affect the basic policies and operations of their institutions. In many cases, however, admissions of officers may spread too thinly without adequate assistance. (MJM)
