Title

Draft: Annual Report Academic Affairs, School of Agriculture and Life Sciences, 1971-72

Description

Like the Annual Report of 1970-71, this report showed a continual increase in student enrollment. This report emphasizes the recruitment of black faculty into the program, a phenomenon that appears to have occurred within the past few years. This report occurred during the Department of Justice's review of NC State's compliance with Affirmative Action. The report revealed how few African Americans received formal education in agricultural or biological sciences, and in turn few African Americans were available to educate whites and African Americans. The report discusses the attempts to attract black graduate students, but with limited success and the reasons are unstated.

"Recruitment of Black Faculty. Recruitment of black faculty in the School of Agriculture and Life Sciences continues to receive emphasis. The School is interested in obtaining the best persons possible regardless of race or creed. There are very few blacks available with training in the agricultural or biological sciences. Two blacks, one in the Botany Department and one in the Animal Science Department (a DVM), have been added. There has been a concerted effort to attract black graduate students with limited success."
