Minority Recruitment Data. An Analysis of Baccalaureate Degree Production in the United States.
Deskins, Donald R., Jr.
This book identifies institutions where significant numbers of Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, and Native Americans receive their baccalaureate degrees. The information is provided in order to assist universities and businesses in recruiting minority candidates for professional positions, and to counter the prevelant idea that there is no available pool of minority students for such positions. The primary source of information is the 1978-79 Higher General Information Survey conducted by the U.S. Department of Education. The book is organized to facilitate recruitment strategies. The data are broken down by minority groups and then further by 24 disciplinary divisions; both minority group and discipline are broken down by state and by institution. Information is also given on the proximity of each institution to an airport. The data show that in 1978-79 10.8% of the baccalaureates conferred went to minorities, of which percentage 60.8% went to Blacks, 20.3% to Hispanics, 15.5% to Asians, and 3.4% to Native Americans. The states producing the largest number of minority baccalaureates were found to be California, New York, Texas, and Florida in that order. (CG)
