Institutional Research at Predominantly Black Colleges and Universities.
Brown, Charles I., Ed.
One of the youngest of the professions belonging to higher education is institutional research. But younger still has been the incursion of institutional research onto the campuses of predominantly black institutions. This group of papers attempts to lend a truer perspective to the burgeoning institutional research function at predominantly black institutions. The papers cover: (1) a poll conducted among institutional researchers at predominantly black colleges and universities; (2) the origin of institutional research in North Carolina at public-supported institutions, the sameness which marks the institutional research function at both black and white campuses, the necessity to relate research at black institutions to black students; (3) the need for a total information gathering and reporting system, the role an office of institutional research should play as a part of the total information and reporting system, institutional benefits as whole or partial derivatives of an office of institutional research; (4) assessment of student attitudes as measured by College Student Questionnaires data; and (5) an analysis of the sex, socioeconomic status, educational background, and concern for grades of North Carolina Central University students, and pairs these findings with the liberality of their political views.
