Toward the Maintenance of Quality Graduate Education in Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
Representatives of 28 of the 33 predominantly black institutions met at the Working Conference-Meeting of Deans of Black Graduate Schools, held in Washington, D.C., April 28-30, 1975. This report presents highlights of their examination of these nine major questions: (1) During these times of integration, compliance, and affirmative action, why the emphasis on black graduate education? (2) What will be its role in providing new career opportunities for its potential clients? (3) Is the lack of financial aid a problem related to maintenance of quality education at black graduate schools? (4) What is unique and vital about black graduate schools? (5) Is community service a high priority at black graduate schools? (6) Are resources adequate? (7) Are the schools research-oriented? (8) How can we justify increasing manpower production in black graduate schools? (9) What projected estimates for graduate education at predominantly black colleges and universities can be made based on current trends? Recommendations are made that cover international education, research, medical and health manpower needs, alumni, continuing education seminars for federal personnel, national committee and advisory board appointments, cooperative arrangements, and projected development through 1980.
