Next, guidelines for the BAC specify: (1) the status of the committee; (2) its purposes, i.e., to be a source of information for the college president, to assist in recruiting and retaining black personnel and students, and to develop a positive image of the college in the community; (3) its membership, which consists of people from the black community, administrators, faculty, and staff; (4) the offices and tenure of committee members; and (5) the frequency of meetings. Appended material provides BAC recommendations to the college president from 1979-80 through 1982-83, which included the funding of a Black Student Retention Pilot Project, the establishment of an Office of Minority Affairs, improved transportation for students, more support for developmental programs, and the employment of greater numbers of black faculty and administrators.
