Access of Women and Minorities to Higher Education: Changes in Taste and Colour without Chemical Changes: Part 1.
Cloutier, Renee
The accessibility of higher education to women and minorities was studied, with a focus on the University of California, Berkeley. Information was also obtained on the University of California system, the California State University system, and the community college system. In order to provide comparative information for Quebec, Canada, access of women to the Universite Laval was also assessed. Research questions included: Which minority groups have gained the most from higher education? Have women belonging to minority ethnic groups made the same gains as their male counterparts? Have white women made higher gains than white men? Have women of other minority ethnic groups made higher gains than minority ethnic men? To which socioeconomic strata do minority ethnic groups belong? Additional information on the access of women and minorities to higher education included: the types of institutions attended, the levels of study being pursued, and degrees conferred. The following ethnic groups were considered: American Indian, Asian, Filipino, Black, Hispanic, and White. Institutional factors that appear to restrict access to higher education for women and minority ethnic groups are identified. (SW)
