Undergraduate and Graduate Enrollments of Blacks and Chicanos at UCB.
Data are presented concerning the enrollments of Black and Chicano graduate and undergraduate students at the University of California at Berkeley. Some problems, particularly those stemming from academic decision-making at the undergraduate level, are noted. A number of problematic academic decisions that are (were) likely to affect negatively the recruitment and retention of Black and Chicano students are covered. Data are presented on the enrollments for these two groups by department and level for 1974 and 1978. Data on Black and Hispanic enrollments for the Berkeley campus are contrasted with those systemwide, and other related information are also presented. It is concluded that the decline in Black undergraduate enrollments at the Berkeley campus and the low level of enrollment of Hispanic graduate and undergraduate students have impaired progress across the University of California system as a whole.
