Some General Proposals for Increasing the Production of Minority Professionals in the Basic Sciences.
Watson, Joseph W.
This paper reports the proposals of a November 4, 1975 conference of Black college and university presidents held to propose the establishment of a national plan to achieve parity of minorities in all areas of higher education and in all professional and technical fields by the year 2000. Federal fellowships for minorities and Federal grants and contracts for graduate study are recommended. At the undergraduate level, direct funding of minority science students and doubling the enrollments of traditional Black colleges producing engineers are proposed. At the secondary school level, increased minority enrollment in college preparatory mathematics courses is proposed. Statistical tables of minority student enrollment in graduate fields, enrollment in graduate schools, family income distributions, and enrollment in high school mathematics courses are presented.
