McConville, J. Lawrence
This publication contains the results of a survey of two- and four-year colleges and universities in the U.S. Southwest designed to provide detailed information concerning the status of ethnic studies curricula. The Cross-Cultural Southwest Ethnic Study Center (CCSWESC) of the University of Texas at El Paso conducted the survey to promote interinstitutional communication and cooperation between and among CCSWESC and analogous entities on other campuses. A two-page questionnaire was mailed to administrative officers of most junior and senior colleges in California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and Oklahoma. Nearly 100 institutions of the approximately 150 responses indicated a program or activity relevant to the areas surveyed. Survey results include the following: nomenclature of the ethnic curricula; academic levels involved; the regional and minority concerns treated; the manner in which faculty for such programs are distributed among the various teaching departments; and names, characteristics, and activities of related research centers, departments, divisions, committees, offices, and other institutional entities having an interest in minority concerns and interethnic relationships.
