The National Conference on Desegregation in Higher Education: An Evaluation Report.
Smith, Jeff E.
An evaluation report from a national conference on desegregation in higher education is presented. The conference was held in Raleigh, North Carolina, July 18-20, 1979, under the auspices of North Carolina Central University. Conference sponsors were the ERIC Clearinghouse on Higher Education, Educational Testing Service, the North Carolina Humanities Committee, the School of Education at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and the Institute on Desegregation. It was designed to provide opportunities for individuals involved in developing and implementing desegregation policies to participate in and react to general and concurrent sessions dealing with the impact of desegregation policies in higher education on students, staff, faculty, individual institutions, statewide systems of education, and society. The conference was also organized to give researchers an opportunity to share the major findings and implications of their research with those who develop or implement desegregation policies at state and institutional levels. Information is presented on the following: demographic characteristics of conference participants; distribution of and response to evaluation forms; background of respondents, including agency and organization affiliation, residence, sex, and race, and highest level of educational attainment. Information is also presented on participant response concerning conference promotion and publicity, conference dates, conference length, conference program content and quality, and overall reaction of respondents to the conference. Samples of both positive and negative reactions from individual participants are included. Suggestions for future conferences are included. (SW)
