Curricular Innovations in Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Volume 1.
Calbert, Roosevelt; Epps, Willie J.
This document is an attempt to communicate information on the innovative programs in which black colleges and universities are involved. Part 1, the introduction, covers historical perspective on curriculum development in black colleges, rationales for the study of curricular innovations in historically black colleges and curricular innovations. Part 2, covers methodology, discusses procedures and sample, and the survey. Part 3 covers results and also discusses curricular innovations in historically black colleges, curricular innovations in large and small historically black colleges and curricular innovations in public and private historically black colleges. Part 4 contains conclusions and appendixes, lists colleges and universities responding to the survey, and provides statistical tables. Some conclusions are: larger colleges report more innovations that might be construed as academic-intellectual in nature while smaller colleges report more student-life type innovations; faculties initiate nearly 60 percent of all programs; programs have not spread widely throughout the colleges, as might be expected; women's studies are infrequently part of the investigated colleges' curriculum.
