An Unfinished Mission: Affirmative Action, Minority Admissions, and the Politics of Mission at the University of California, 1868-1997.
Jewell, Joseph O.
Journal of Negro Education, v69 n1-2 p38-48 Win-Spr 2000
Examines how the University of California has addressed the problem of differential access for minorities and longstanding inconsistencies between its admissions practices and mission. Argues that the university's recent retreat from affirmative action signals a departure from its earlier emphasis on providing greater access to higher education overall and increasing the representation of minorities at the University of California Berkeley.
