Manpower and the Minority Student. Regional Spotlight Vol. XI, No. 1.
Market saturation and diminishing opportunities are imminent in fields heavily favored by blacks in college: the social sciences, home economics and education. Future opportunities will come in fields presently unpopular or unknown to blacks: engineering, accounting, library science, urban and regional planning, health professions, and computer sciences. The southern states' Institute for Higher Educational Opportunity has served since 1967 as a vehicle to promote black educational progress. Its activities have included direct financial aid to institutions, advisory assistance, regional workshops, writing conferences, planning sessions, and more than 25 published studies. The emphasis in these activities has been on recruitment, addmissions and retention, building curricula, and institutional sharing. Some statistical data on enrollments and job prospects, examples of interinstitutional cooperation, and a brief bibliography are included. (MSE)
