Virginia State Council of Higher Education, Richmond.
Amendments to the "Virginia Plan for Equal Opportunity in State-Supported Institutions of Higher Education," which were submitted to the U.S. Office for Civil Rights, are presented. Commitments of the state include: increasing the enrollment of black undergraduates at state colleges and at the traditionally white colleges, increasing the enrollment of white students at traditionally black colleges (TBIs), expanding the Virginia community college system outreach efforts to high schools, improving undergraduate and graduate student recruitment, improving student retention, completing a transfer guide for community college students, and sponsoring an annual conference for potential graduate students. A proposal for a Virginia Transfer Student Grant Program is described, along with the Commonwealth Faculty Exchange Program, Commonwealth Visiting Professorships, and recruitment initiatives for nonwhite faculty members. The enhancement of the TBIs and secondary school outreach programs and student admission and retention are also discussed. Educational reforms in the state, including early remedial education and greater emphasis on core academic subjects, are also identified. Appendices include data on black and white student enrollments by institution. (SW)
