The Progress of Desegregation in Maryland's Public Postsecondary Educational Institutions, 1974-1980. Seventh Annual Desegregation Status Report.
Johnson, Cheryl; And Others
Desegregation progress under the "Maryland Plan for Completing the Desegregation of the Public Postsecondary Institutions in the State," which spanned from 1974 to 1980, is reviewed. The community college segment and the state college and university segment have met their 1980 projected ranges, but as a segment, the University of Maryland fell short of the 1980 goal. Only the Baltimore campus of the University of Maryland met its individual campus 1980 goal. The historically white schools achieved a black enrollment that was 14.3 percent of all undergraduates, while the historically black institutions, with a black enrollment of 89.3 percent, failed to decrease their black enrollment to the 65-69 percent projected ranges for 1980. Data are presented on trends in graduate school and professional school enrollment by race; headcount enrollment by institution by race; trends in full-time and part-time enrollment by race; trends in the distribution of black full-time undergraduates among groups of institutions; and trends in first-time, full-time black enrollment. Data are also presented on degrees awarded by race and degrees awarded at traditionally white and traditionally black institutions, degrees awarded by race and subject area; noninstructional staff by race, full-time faculty by rank and race, and expenditures for desegregation by college and sectors. The 1974 desegregation plan is outlined in terms of objectives and policies. Overall, 14 of 22 predominantly white institutions reached the 1980 ranges of black population, and black students account for 21.3 percent of full-time undergraduate enrollment in public institutions.
