Programs in Science for Minority Students, 1960-1975.
Malcom, Shirley Mahaley, Comp.; And Others
This document provides an alphabetical list of programs designed to improve the science education of minority groups and to increase their participation in science and science-related careers. Minority refers to such racial and/or ethnic groups as Blacks, Chicanos/Mexican Americans, Native Americans/American Indians, and Puerto Ricans. Programs in science include the physical and biological sciences; engineering and technical fields; health sciences; agriculture; science education and counseling; and some social sciences such as anthropology, psychology, and geography. Projects to improve mathematics competence were included only when they were an integral part of a larger program to improve scientific capabilities of minority students. Each entry includes an alphabetical number, program title, discipline, location, educational level, minority group involved/targeted, program dates, amount of funding, source of funds, number of participants, description, and name/address of contact person. An overview of the inventory (including scope; methodology; and descriptive profile by disciplines, minority group, educational levels, and program costs), description of programs illustrating approaches taken to increase minority participation, comments on using the inventory, and an annotated bibliography of other program inventories are provided. Also provided are three indices: an alphabetical listing of programs and a breakdown of programs by educational level and by discipline. (JN)
