Second Annual Desegregation Status Report for Public Postsecondary Education in Maryland. Volume 1. Summary Tables.
Maryland Council for Higher Education, Annapolis.
This volume of the Maryland desegregation status report provides detailed data on the efforts of public postsecondary education institutions. The data collected for the fall of 1975 includes race composition information on applications rates, residence, financial aid awards, degrees, progression rates, and enrollment by program area for students. Also collected were data on full-time and part-time employees, changes in status of employees, salaries of full-time faculty, and information on faculty by program area. Racial composition data for employees of state agencies and members of boards associated with higher education are included. The percent of black full-time undergraduate students has increased from 13.3 percent in 1970 to 20 percent in 1975; the percent of black full-time graduate students has increased from 7.7 percent in 1970 to 10.2 percent in 1975. The percentage of other race students among the full-time undergraduate students has increased since 1974 for 23 of 28 reporting campuses. An Other-Race Grants program for graduate students has been initiated for next fall to help institutions attract other-race students at the graduate level. The number of black employees has increased since fall 1974, particularly in the faculty and nonprofessional categories. The percentage of black employees among all employees has decreased slightly. Several statewide programs have been established to assist the institutions in recruiting and hiring more other-race persons. (SW)
