Research and Learning Centers Among Black Colleges in the Human Services: A Feasibility Study. Final Report.
Royster, Eugene C.; And Others
This fact finding project (1971-72) accumulated information upon which Social and Rehabilitation Service (SRS) could begin reversing its tendency to fund white rather than black institutions of higher learning as training and research centers. The purpose was to suggest where and how, among black institutions, future funds might best be allocated. This was to be a feasibility study; it would recommend mechanisms of action but not choose locations or membership for particular centers. Data were collected by mail questionnaires sent to administrators and faculty of black colleges and universities, by interviews conducted in 54 schools and from institutional publications. It was concluded that establishment of research and learning centers in black schools is feasible and that, in general, implementation should be through statewide clusters of schools. (Author)
