Report To Propose Ways of Enhancing the Role and Image of Predominantly Black Public Colleges in Maryland.
Maryland Council for Higher Education, Annapolis.
A biracial Task Force, formed by letter of charge from the Chairman of the Maryland Council for Higher Education, held its first meeting at Morgan State College on April 5, 1974. The Task Force heard presentations and received documentation from Bowie, Coppin, and Morgan State Colleges and from the University of Maryland. Members of the staff of the Maryland Council for Higher Education made available much statistical and comparative information about all institutions of higher education in the state. The first conclusion reached by the Task Force was that certain inequities and disadvantages exist and can be attributed to insufficient state fiscal support in terms of per capita wealth coupled with attitudes about all higher education in Maryland. These inequities have been faced particularly by black colleges since their beginnings. However, these colleges were still able to fill the educational need. It is therefore the consensus of the Task Force that a degree of conscientious funding be provided to allow these colleges to further enhance their role and image and to develop internal management systems for keeping up their uniqueness and the further promotion of academic excellence at these institutions.
