Historical Perspectives on the Development of Equal Opportunity in Higher Education. Six Addresses Delivered at the University of Iowa Training Institute for EOP Administrators, 1973-74.
Jones, Phillip E., Ed.
A historical perspective on several issues related to the development of equal opportunity in higher education is presented in these speeches. Six authors address the following issues: (1) the black college in historical perspective (Stephen Wright); (2) the development of equal opportunity in relation to historical patterns in higher education (Elias Blake, jr.); (3) a historical account of testing as it relates to equal opportunity (William Turnbull); (4) financing postsecondary education for EOP students (Fred F. Harcleroad); (5) future considerations on the development of educational opportunity programs (Willard L. Boyd); and (6) a historical model for evaluating equal opportunity programs (Hugh W. Lane). The speakers come from the American College Testing Program, the College Entrance Examination Board, the Institute for Services to Education, the Educational Testing Service, the National Scholarship Service and Fund for Negro Students, and the University of Iowa.
