Equality of Representation of Race and Sex Groups in Higher Education: Institutional and Program Enrollment Statuses. Report No. 263.
Thomas, Gail E.
This report analyzes the enrollment of race and sex groups in institutions of higher education in order to describe the differences in black-white and male-female enrollment. The analyses address the types of higher institutions attended and the types of academic programs experienced within these institutions. Findings indicate: (1) black enrollment throughout higher education in 1976 still remained heavily concentrated in the South; (2) traditionally black Southern institutions continued to enroll a significant proportion of the blacks participating in higher education in the South in 1976; (3) in 1974, black and female undergraduates and graduates, relative to whites and males, were still overrepresented in education and the social sciences and underrepresented in the technical sciences; and (4) the smaller proportion of blacks in professional schools, relative to black undergraduates and graduates, was more evenly distributed in academic programs in comparison to white professional students.
