Black Colleges and Universities: The Components of Institutional Effectiveness.
Based on examination of available literature, this report discusses factors that have been found to be correlated with the effectiveness of black colleges and universities. Identified among such factors are: (1) adequate financial support; (2) satisfactory living conditions and security; (3) good quality of instruction; (4) academic support and enrichment programs; (5) positive faculty and administrator attitudes and behavior; (6) diverse curriculum offerings; and (7) counseling support systems. The report also describes indicators of institutional effectiveness (production of graduates, area of specialization, and product quality), and presents a model that illustrates causal associations between the structural determinants and the indicators of effectiveness. Finally, a table is presented that identifies traditionally black higher education institutions in the United States and indicates highest degree offered, whether the institution is public or private, total 1980 enrollment, and percentage of black enrollment in 1980.
