Description

The 1980 Annual Report discusses SALS attempts to recruit minority undergraduate students. A pilot program was designed to stimulate the minority community's interest in science careers via opportunities in laboratory and/or field research. Viewers can also refer to the digitized source - Federal, Professors, and Students documents related to USDA Research Apprenticeship Program, 1980 for more information about the students and faculty experience with the program. The report also informs readers about gender demographics of the incoming student body. 55% were male and 45% female representing a quickly closing gap in educational access for women. The beginning of the 1980s represented the School of Agriculture's broadening its definition of education empowerment to include women and minorities.
