California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
The Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA) Program was established in 1970 to increase the number of minority students in college programs. This paper reports the MESA administrative operations and policy-making processes. Part 1 summarizes the background of this study. Part 2 describes MESA's administrative operations and provides evidence on the extent to which the program is functioning as "a cooperative effort of secondary and postsecondary educational institutions working with private industry." Part 3 discusses MESA's policy decision-making process, with particular attention to the extent to which its board of directors is functioning as prescribed in the law. This section includes a brief discussion of the extent to which MESA is achieving its goal. Finally, part 4 presents four conclusions about MESA and four recommendations to enhance its administrative and policy-making process for the future. Appendices include: (1) "Assembly Bill 610 (1985)"; (2) "MESA's Industry Advisory Board"; and (3) "MESA's Board of Directors." (YP)
