Underrepresented Groups in Public Institutions of Higher Education in Illinois. Report to the Governor and General Assembly.
Illinois State Board of Higher Education, Springfield.
This is the seventh annual report on minority, female, and disabled students and staff in Illinois higher education, submitted under a legislative mandate. The main body of the report is divided into three sections. The first presents trends and the most recent enrollment, employment, and degree completion data for these students at public universities, community colleges, and private schools. Black enrollment at the undergraduate level increased slightly in 1993, with a slight increase at the graduate level also. The growth in Hispanic enrollment is somewhat greater, with a 4.5% increase from 1992 to 1993. The second section, "Efforts To Improve Representation," describes major statewide and institutional initiatives that have occurred in the past year and describes the results of studies related to underrepresented groups. The third section considers public college and university efforts in Illinois to improve the retention of undergraduate students from underrepresented groups. Three appendixes present material on specific program activities as reported by individual schools, an annotated bibliography of 11 sources, a list of programs, and tables to supplement the text. (Contains 34 figures, 3 text tables, and 24 appendix tables.) (SLD)
