Texas Coll. and Univ. System, Austin. Coordinating Board.
The Texas plan to assure equality of educational opportunity, which was approved by the U.S. Department of Education Offices for Civil Rights, is presented. Policy statements and descriptions of the existing and expanded activities of higher education systems are included. Progress in increasing the participation of Blacks and Hispanics in the system is reported in terms of enrollments, degrees conferred, employment, and governance and coordination. Information is presented on the mission, role and scope, geographic service area, and projected size of the student body during the plan of each of the four institutions of the Texas public higher education system: Texas State Technical Institute, community junior colleges, senior academic institutions, and health science centers and medical schools. Attention is also directed to steps to strengthen the role of Texas Southern University and Prairie View A&M University, along with elimination of educational duplication. Additional areas of concern include: recruitment, enrollment, and graduation of Blacks and Hispanics at the undergraduate, graduate, and first-professional levels; and increasing the numbers and proportions of Blacks and Hispanics in faculty, staff, and administrative positions at colleges and on systemwide and institutional governing boards. Appendices include information for the higher education sectors and for specific campuses. (SW)
