Access & Equity... Diversity in Higher Education. South Carolina Access & Equity Statewide Program, Fiscal Year 2009-2010
South Carolina Commission on Higher Education
From 1981 to 1986 South Carolina implemented a federally mandated desegregation plan designed to: (1) enhance the State's public historically black colleges; (2) desegregate student enrollment at the State's baccalaureate degree granting public colleges and universities; and (3) desegregate faculties, staffs, and governing bodies of all public colleges and universities in South Carolina. In 1985, the Commission on Higher Education adopted the "South Carolina Plan for Equity and Equal Opportunity in Public Institutions of Higher Education 1986-87 and Beyond" which over a three year period, provided funds to support: (1) a Graduate Incentive Fellowship Program; (2) an Other Race Grants Program (now called Access & Equity Undergraduate Scholars Program); (3) a Minority Recruitment and Retention Grants Program, and (4) programs to enhance the State's two public historically black institutions. In February 1988, the Commission approved guidelines for the Access and Equity program. The Access and Equity program vision is to achieve educational equity for all students and faculty in higher education. This report discusses (1) the history of the Access and Equity program; (2) the Access and Equity program's goals; (3) the Access and Equity program's objectives for 2009 and beyond; (4) the guidelines for the use of the Access and Equity program; and (5) the guidelines for the Access and Equity scholarships and aid programs. Statistics on the South Carolina Access and Equity statewide program for the fiscal year 2009-2010 are also included. A list of the Access and Equity Institutional Representatives is appended.
