This report presents the findings and recommendations of a consulting team dedicated to helping the Florida Division of Community Colleges achieve its goal of enrolling and employing Blacks and other minorities in approximate proportion to the 18- to 64-year-old population of the State by 1980. This report includes: (1) a detailed description of a data system designed to collect the information on attrition and retention needed to monitor progress toward this goal; (2) a discussion of methods of developing alternative instructional delivery systems for ensuring successful learning by minority students; (3) a review of testing as a screening and diagnostic device, accompanied by recommendations that group or standardized tests yielding IQ scores be discontinued for use in the community colleges of Florida and that student advisors be urged to utilize other tools to assess student potential; (4) discussions of the elements of an optimum human relations atmosphere at community colleges and methods of improving campus life and career awareness for minority students; (5) descriptions of methods of recruiting and retaining minority faculty, professional staff, and students; and (6) a review of court cases relating to Title IV of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and their implications for Florida's community colleges.
