Institutional Characteristics Affecting Minority Admissions and Enrollment Levels at State Universities in Ohio, 1973-1976.
Miller, Robert; And Others
The factors affecting the admission and enrollment of minority students at the 12 state universities in Ohio were studied through campus visits, questionnaire administration, and correlation and multiple regression analysis of the findings. Summaries are presented on minority recruitment and retention efforts at each university for the following offices: admissions, financial aid, affirmative action, minority affairs, student affairs, academic affairs, social and cultural activities, black/ethnic studies, and black/ethnic cultural centers. Predictor variables that were isolated for analysis were: cost, federal financial aid, distance from a cultural center, strength of black studies programs and black cultural centers, and strength of minority and special service programs. Figures were obtained for full-time, main-campus, entering undergraduate freshmen for each fall session from 1973 to 1976. The statistical analysis suggests that the major factors affecting minority student enrollment are geographic location and the strength of the tutoring, counseling, and social, academic, and cultural programming services available to minority students. Two other factors deserving attention by administrators are the availability of financial aid and the need for more minority group members in faculty, staff, and administrative positions. (SW)
