The six major conference papers collected in this document focus on developing ways of facilitating equity and academic achievement in a desegregated setting. The psychological impact of fostering these expectations among multicultural populations, methods for involving minority students in a science and math high-tech curriculum, and methods for increasing achievement in language usage in a culturally diverse setting are among the topics considered. Paper titles and authors are the following: (1) "Equity and Excellence in Science" (C. Hardeman); (2) "Equity and Academic Achievement in a Culturally Diverse Setting" (A. Zimmerman); (3) "Equity in Science and Mathematics" (H. L. Brown); (4) "Academic Achievement in a Desegregated Setting" (R. R. Weaver); (5) "Language Approach to Cultural Diversity" (M.
