Black Colleges-A National Resource for the Training of Minority Scientific and Engineering Manpower.
Humphries, Frederick S.
This paper outlines recent Black achievements in higher education, particularly in science and engineering. Stressed, however, is the fact that while Black achievement has greatly increased in recent years, it still lags far behind national averages. Cited are five studies comparing Black and non-Black enrollment in various disciplines, degrees granted in various disciplines, and number of student majors by departments in historically Black colleges. Recommended is stronger emphasis upon programs such as the Science Curriculum of the Thirteen-College Curriculum Program and greater financial awards to Black students majoring in scientific disciplines.
