Minority Admissions.
Bailey, Robert L.; Hafner, Anne L.
The changing role of admission policies and practices as higher education institutions deal with the problems of miniority acess and admissibility is examined in this book. Sections dealing with admission requirements, academic prediction, and major problems in admission practices provide background information on the workings of student selection. A history of minority preference in admission is presented, and testing and the race relevance are examined as an important factor in the admissibility of minorities. Policy issues are discussed in the case for/against minority preferences, constitutional and legislative strategies, and long-range issues, including the role of an admissions policy in meeting societal needs. Suggestions are offered for designing an action implementation plan to make possible minority access and admission in accordance with the Bakke decision. It is concluded that higher education institutions should pursue actively early outreach programs that parallel or supplement normal admission procedures. Appended are the texts of the California Supreme Court decision on Bakke, the brief filed by the University of California to the U.S. Supreme Court, and an extensive bibliography. (LBH)
